Very Chic Scarf | The Knitting Vortex

Part of the Very Chic series, this scarf features elongated cables, made extra fluid by dropping stitches between select cables. The result is a soft and drapey skinny scarf that naturally curls slightly inward, making an attractive and wrappable semi-tube that’s fun to knit and pretty to wear.

Techniques & Skills Used: knit/purl, cables, dropped stitches; this pattern includes both a chart and written instructions.

Size: 5” wide and 80” long, after gentle blocking.

Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Worsted (100% Merino Wool; 210 yards/100g); 2 skeins, shown in Violetas.

Other Materials: US 9 (5.5mm) needles; Stitch Markers (3); Cable needle; Yarn needle; Crochet hook (any size) to help with raveling.

Gauge: 16 st and 20 rows/4” in stockinette stitch; one cable is approximately 2.5” wide. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished scarf, and different yardage requirements.

See it on Ravelry, to read more or purchase the pattern.
