I showed this elsewhere on this site, but not in 'Pictures' yet, so here is the reversable cables scarf I made my son for Christmas. Finished it on the 26th!

Instructions are here:
http://jillsknit.blogspot.com/2009/10/reversible-cable-scarf-pattern.html

It takes 2 skeins Woolease worsted. One thing I found, to improve the pattern, is to start with 32 sts for the moss st border, rather than the 36 she tells you to use. Once you knit the 10 row border, inc 2 sts where each cable will be (4 total), bringing your st count back up to 36 again. This will keep the end of the scarf from flaring out like a bell.

When you knit to the other end, decrease those 4 sts (2 at each cable) before beginning the final moss st border.

Oh, and I also changed the left cable to twist opposite the right cable, rather than both twisting the same way. I like the symmetry.


No wrong side

Thanks so much for the link. I collect reversable patterns and turn them into moebius neckwarmers and cowls. I love this one.

Great scarf. I just love reversible patterns. Some people can't distinguish between the right and wrong side, so find this a winner.
