Just finished this one to send my older brother for his 50th birthday. I figured I needed to send something a little extra special since he's half a century old. I wrote in his card that when he wears it he should pretend it's a hug from me. At least he'll know he's loved.

Good Lord, that's gorgeous! I'm new to knitting and have just started a scarf with a cable in it. I hope to someday have the talent you do. I hope your brother appreciates the effort you put into his gift!

Lois. Keep at it. I've only been doing this about 3 years but became instantly obsessed. The trick is not to be intimidated to try new things. Also, anytime you come across a stitch in a pattern that's unfamiliar to you, the internet is a wonderful resource to learn how to do it. Just plug the stitch name or abbreviation into the search engine and you'll be all set!

Please share where you found such a beautiful pattern. I'm not sure I'm up to this challenge but I know I sure want to try this particular pattern.
You really would like an adopted sister now wouldn't you? LOL!!

Carol,

I actually adopted parts of a sweater pattern I found in an out-of-print copy of "Knitter's Magazine" (Knitter's Magazine Winter 1996 - Vol. 13, Number 4) to make my brother's scarf. If you send me a private message, I'll be happy to provide the pattern I used for your personal use.

Thanks, Kichi.

I fell in love with the pattern too. It was actually a single vine that formed the middle panel of a cabled sweater. I just repeated the pattern twice over and over again until I got the length of scarf that I wanted. I added a simple cabled edge to either side of the scarf to make it a little more interesting and give it a more substantial look.

That is absolutely beautiful! He is very lucky.
You women and men on here make me feel so inspired. I've made 2 things now, and have SO many things I want to make that I don't know where to go next! I feel like my skill isn't anywhere near when it'll need to be to make some of these things, but knowing its all just variations of knits and purls, and that I have a wealth of knowledge and expertise available to me here (which is way better than a google search because it can be an actual conversation) I know I can actually tackle anything, no matter the skill level. It just may take me a while to complete some things and I may be on here a lot! Thanks for the support I've gotten and am yet to receive everyone! And keep up the good work Jeannine!

The scarf is so beautiful I too can see the love for your brother in the scarf. I too have a wonderful brother and would love to make him something this nice. I have looked and pondered on patterns and somehow they just didn't feel right. But this scarf does. Thank you for allowing us to see it.
