I love the Cables and Knots pattern from my book Reversible Scarves: Curing the Wrong Side Blues. It’s now available through Ravelry and Love Knitting as an individual pattern. It’d make a great holiday gift, if you can stand to give it away!
The jaunty cables form scalloped edges on this scarf. They’re the same on both sides so it’s reversible.
I wrote the instructions for the knots to make them simple and not overly fussy (think bobbles). The pattern includes instructions for casting on and binding off in pattern, as an option for adding mirrored polish to the scarf’s ruffled ends.
The scarf can be dressed up or dressed down, and is as cheery to knit as it is to wear!
