Frog Tree Cables and Knots

October 25

I love getting a chance to work with new-to-me yarns. I had the pleasure of making two sample scarves from my book Reversible Scarves: Curing the Wrong Side Blues. Both used Frog Tree’s Pediboo Worsted, a lovely blend of machine washable worsted and bamboo. Here’s the first of the samples (I’ll blog about the other at a later date):

You can see that the yarn lends nice stitch definition to my “Cables and Knots” pattern…

 …I also love the way the little scallops along the scarf’s edges held their shape after blocking.

Like many of the patterns in my book, the “Cables and Knots” design looks more complicated than it really is. The knots in the center of the cables are very easy to make (unlike bobbles, which I find to be kind of fussy). The pattern repeat is easy to memorize, too.

This particular sample will be on display at the Ball & Skein & More yarn store in Cambria, California. It took three skeins of yarn.

I like it so much, I may have to make another to keep myself!

The Ball & Skein & More carries a wonderful selection of Frog Tree yarns and my book. You can see the Cables and Knots sample, and they always have my book available.

    Hello Audrey;

    Absolutely stunning design! Thanks for using our Pediboo yarn. And for showcasing it with your beautiful scarf.

    Cat suggested that we prepare a sample for our booth at TNNA in San Diego, which we will do.

    Thanks again. Give our friends Kris and Oz a big hug from us.

    All the best, Tricia and Chet
