Here and There Cables


Hi all! Here is my finished scarf in Malabrigo kettle dyed yarn in color Sealing Wax. I don't know how the color appears on your monitor, but it is a warm, oxblood color in person. I did the scarf in 3 pattern repeats instead of 4 because it is for a man and because the yarn knits up very thick cables. The scarf is about 6 feet long. I think it is very comfortable!
I don't know if it was the pattern or the incredibly soft yarn that made this scarf such a joy to knit. I'm considering making another one, this time for me!

    Gorgeous! I hadn't thought about Malabrigo for this scarf; how perfect! How many skeins did it take?

    Beautiful. I tried that one once, smaller like yours too but gave up because the cables with my yarn choice just didn't go. I love that color!

    It looks beautiful! I'm working on this pattern myself and can't wait to see it finished.

    Good work!

    Ooh, that would be a perfect use for the random Malabrigo in my stash! How many skeins did you use?

    Sorry for not checking back in so long! I used 3 skeins of Malabrigo to get a 6 ft scarf.
