Border Classic Scarf

from Dragonfly NeedleWorks
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Border Classic Scarf
Border Classic Scarf
Border Classic Scarf

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, Purl, Cable

Pattern Description:

The Border Classic scarf is named after the Border Leicester breed of sheep that lends its wool to the making of the yarn chosen for this design. The cables give it a timeless look that can be worn well on both men and women. The pattern consists of clustered cables, each followed by a stretch of ribbed fabric, beginning and ending with the cables. The sport weight is ideal for the scarf length, which I wanted very long for more versatility in the way in which it can be worn.
