The Hooded Cable Scarf – Knitting Pattern

Although it’s been a while and I have published other patterns since than, I cannot resist sharing this one with you.

I’ve never been a hat person in my younger years. I’ve always loved to feel the wind in my hair. Of course that changed in the last couple of years. But even now, I do have days when I want my hair to be free; when I am not in the mood to arrange my hair every time I take my hat off; yet not to be cold, but cozy.

Those are the days when a hooded scarf is welcomed. Warm, cozy and stylish!

So I designed a new pattern – The Hooded Cable Scarf

Textured, yet simple and elegant. I love it!

Happy knitting!

P.S. If you are not a fan of texture, I have an older pattern for a hooded cowl.

Easy Garter Stitch scarf – Free Pattern

Autumn is here and we definitely are in the mood to knit more. For knitters is like spring cleaning. We always go through our stash and try to organise it in order to make room for more yarn. This October I promised myself I will not buy more yarn until I use all my previous purchases.

So, in order to make some more space for new creations, I shared some items that I still had in this post on the Facebook Page. Look them up, you might find something you like.

Browsing my yarn stash I found two lovely colour, light green and peach and use them to make this simple, but very cute scarf.

Here is the free pattern:

Materials & Info
Yarn: aprox. 200m (218 yards) + yarn for 2 pompoms
Gauge: 16st/20 rows = 10cm/10cm (4in)
Needles: 6mm (US 10)
Finished size for the scarf in the image: 15cm (6in) by 125cm (50in)
Pattern Notes:
The Easy Garter Stitch Pattern a simple and fast knit, with basic knitting stitches. Very easy for beginners as well.
Gauge is not crucial, but please keep in mind that the finished measurements will be different with a different gauge.

This pattern can be worked with any yarn with the appropriate needles. This way, you can make it your desired length.

Pattern Instructions

The Scarf is knitted in one piece, and you sew the pom pom’s at the end.

For finishing, work the decreasing rows as follows:

Row 1: Sl1, K1, SSK, K to last 4 st, K2tog, K2
Row 2: Sl1, Kall

Repeat row 1 & 2 until you have 6 st left and work the last 2 rows as bellow:

Row 1: Sl1, SSK, K2tog, K1

Make 2 pom pom’s and attach them to each corner of your scarf and snuggle away.

Let me know how yours turned out!
