Amy Cabled Scarf

Pattern: Amy Scarf, by me, download it now!
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Rialto, color Eggplant, 6 skeins
Needles: Addi Turbos, US 6 (4.0mm)

The scarf was designed for and named after my Maid of Honor, a dear friend of…oh gosh…16 years? Something like that. Forever! She still lives in Wisconsin where we grew up, and a big warm scarf like this is very, very useful.

I wanted the pattern to be graceful, but regal. I spent a lot of time staring at stitch patterns before settling on a traditional Saxon braid for the center panel. I can’t remember exactly where I got it from, but it’s either adapted from Knitting on the Edge or the giant 1970s needlecraft book I stole borrowed indefinitely from my mother. The side panels are from Cables Untangled.

That was back in May. Fast forward six months. I finish the scarf, give it away, and promptly lose the pattern notes.

The good news was that six months of scarf knitting had burned the 32-row repeat into my brain. That was easily reconstructed. A little scribbling, calculating, and swatching generated the rest (slightly improved, too).

The pattern is free to download and knit, but I hope that if you like it, you’ll hit the donate button and send me whatever you think the pattern is worth. As always, if you have questions or find an error, just shoot me an e-mail or leave a comment on the blog and I’ll do my best to help you out.

Happy knitting!
