The Music
BrunuhVille is a Portuguese composer who, his website states, "creates a world of magic and fantasy between the fusion of Gothic, orchestral, Celtic, folk, movie, ethnic and world music."

Guardian of the Woods is a beautifully complex and emotionally moving tune from his Tales of the Lost Kingdom. It is the perfect inspiration for this beautiful scarf with its double-sided edge cables and dual-natured main pattern stitch.

Pattern Notes
Cables are worked on both the Right Side and Wrong Side rows for this design.

The edges of the scarf are worked in a double-sided cable creating a truly reversible scarf. The side cables also create a wonderfully scalloped edge.

Two full versions of the pattern are provided, one for knitters who prefer to work from charts and one for knitters who prefer to work from written directions.

Skill Note
The bind off for this scarf is done 'in pattern' therefore the knitter needs to be able to read their knitting i.e. identify knit and purl stitches as they present themselves on the needles.

See photos for an abbreviations list for this pattern.
