Cables in cashmere, what could be better! Envelop yourself in luxury by knitting this scarf or wrap in DK weight cashmere. The woven cable motif grows naturally out of 2x2 ribbing; simple, yet elegant.
Pattern includes charts and text translations of the chart.
The scarf is knit from one short end to the other, with a diamond motif on each end with 2x2 ribbing in between. The wrap is knit from one short end to the other but has 3 repeats of the motif across the width. On the wrap, the triple cable diamond motif is repeated three times along the length of the wrap, so that one motif sits right between your shoulder blades when you wear it.
32 stitches and 24 rows per 4.75 inches wide and 4 inches tall (12x10 cm) in cable pattern after blocking

I started sewing when I was a toddler on one of those drilled out boards where you use a shoelace and sew the outline of a fish or a duck. Once I could wield scissors I started sewing dresses for my dolls.
I added crochet when I was 8, cross stitching when I was 10, beading at 11, and knitting at 16. And I started binding books in college.
