Pattern Description:

I was so excited to discover that I could make this scarf reversible! I played around for quite a while before I found a technique that worked. The scarf has a Saxon Braid cable on the front, and a slightly different, more angular pattern on the back. The scarf is long and cushy. The pattern includes both charted and written instructions for the reversible cable, as well as a Technique Feature with a photo-illustrated tutorial on turning cables without a cable needle. The pattern is intended for the personal use of the purchaser, and is not meant to be used commercially.

Mountain Mist on

I was taught the basics of knitting, crochet, embroidery, and sewing by my grandmother when I was young. I have found that I enjoy doing a variety of fiber related crafts, and have over the years learned to spin yarn, weave, tat, braid, felt and bead. But the greatest satisfaction for me comes from using my God-given creativity to create my own designs and techniques.
