Pattern Description:

Slightly angled, and fully reversible, this hybrid scarf/shoulder shawl is delightful to knit in garter stitch with a cable and lace border and short rows to shape the point.

This scarf begins with one stitch and is increased for the first half of the scarf, then a short row section is worked to angle the lace/cable edge. Then the other side is decreased back down to one stitch. The cable is worked in a ribbing pattern, and the lace border is garter stitch based, making the scarf completely reversible.

Other Details: The finished length of this piece can be easily changed, and instructions for adjusting are in the notes. When working the Bind off/Edging, it can be helpful to work the 'sl1, k2′ by knitting backwards. If you're not familiar with this technique, its a great time to learn! It saves flipping your whole piece over again and again for just a few stitches.
