Pattern Details

Inspired by an antique cider press, the Cider Press Scarf and Cowl feature a "flowing cider" center cable, "wooden screw" side cables and a "screening" border. Work Cider Press in a glorious, full length, or the more tailored buttoned cowl...or both! Both the Cider Press Scarf and Cowl are easily worked from end to end. The mirroring effect is achieved entirely by the visual direction of the pattern stitches used. Allow approximately 565 yds (517 m) of worsted weight yarn for the scarf and approximately 350 yds (320 m) of worsted weight yarn for buttoned cowl. Gauge is not critical, but keep in mind that a different gauge will result in different finished dimensions as well as changing your yarn requirements. Please make sure you have enough yarn! A worsted weight yarn with good stitch definition and little to no halo is recommended. Slight tonals work well, but highly variegated yarn will distract from the cable pattern. The pattern has been professionally tech edited and test knit to reduce the potential for error. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit and purl stitches Slipped Stitches Yarn over Long-tail cast-on Cable cast-on (purl-wise) Cable stitches GAUGE 30 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches in cable pattern, blocked SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished, blocked scarf measures approx 77" (196 cm) long by 7" (18 cm) wide.

Whether you are new to knitting or have been knitting since you can’t remember when, I hope that you will enjoy my patterns. I strive to keep my patterns as straightforward as possible given the techniques being applied. I don’t want someone relatively new to knitting to be intimidated by my patterns. Nearly all of my patterns are charted, but still include full written instructions, so no worries if you prefer not to use charts. I am always happy to hear from fellow knitters and welcome questions on any of my designs - before or after purchase. Knit happy!
