Everyone loves a cabled scarf, but nobody likes when the plain or bumpy reverse side shows. We will explore ways to incorporate advanced cabling techniques on both sides of a scarf. First, we will look at combining cables with double knitting and color. Then we will look at how to work slipstitch cables over a garter stitch background
Worsted weight yarn (balls from your stash are good for swatching the techniques we will be learning), 2-50g balls of highly contrasting colors for the double-knit cable swatch and one 50g solid color for the slip-stitch cable swatch.
Needles US size 7 (or in the size you normally use for worsted weight yarn)
Needles size 5 (or two sizes smaller than you normally use for worsted weight yarn)
Needles size 10 (or three sizes larger than you normally use for worsted weight yarn)
Sticky notes or highlighting tape
Yarn or thread suitable for use as a lifeline
For slip-stitch cable scarf:
Using size 10 needle cast on 36 sts. Row 1: (k1, p1) 2x, (k1, p2, k1) 7x, (k1, p1) 2x Row 2: (k1, p1) 2x, (p1, k2, p1) 7x, (k1, p1) 2x Repeat rows 1 & 2 three more times, or until one inch long Mark Side 1
For double-knit cable scarf: no homework.
Skill Level: Advanced and/or adventurous: Intermediate level skills plus ready for unusual stitches, complex patterns, and unfamiliar techniques. Welcomes a challenge; won't expect instructor to explain standard abbreviations (examples: kfb, yo, ssk).
Must be comfortable working from charts and complex stitch patterns. Some experience with double knitting is helpful, but not required.
