Cable On Scarf is one of my earlier designs I wanted to photograph again, to show off the texture in a better light. I knew my magnificent team: photographer Eivind Røhne, model Silje Andresen/Team Models, hair & makeup artist Sissel Fylling plus location manager Michael Marveng-Puckett, would fulfil my expectations at the National Museum – Architecture in late November. I decided to style the natural grey scarf knitted in the divine Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk Tinde Pelsull/pelt wool yarn, with a black kimono and black pencil trouser as well as long leather gloves. The Norwegian pattern was first printed in the magazine Familien in January 2015. The reviewed English pattern has a new chart and is available on Ravelry and Loveknitting.
The cable on scarf is reversible, made in rib instead of the usual stocking stitch, framed by double seed stitch on every edge. Distinctive Stag Horn cables give the generous scarf texture and depth. Why not use it as a decorative warm collar pinned together by a shawl pin? The sample is knitted in a natural grey shade of the beautiful Tinde Pelt Yarn by Hifa.
The scarf is knitted using 3.5 mm/US 4 needle with a gauge of 20 stitches and 26 rows in stocking stitch measures 10 cm/4″ square. The numerous cables make the scarf slow to knit but it also gives it a lovely textural feel. Now, there is only one design left that I have not shown you from our photoshoot in November and it is coming next.
