Cozy Wooly Cabled Scarf

I bought this yarn at Michaels knowing I would be making JoAnn a scarf for christmas. A thick chunky cabled scarf. I also knew I could come up with my own pattern. I mean really... I've been knitting for half a decade, surely I can create a simple cabled scarf on my own by now...



So here it is:

Cozy Wooly Cabled Scarf

Materials: 225 yards super bulky yarn, 8mm (US 11) needles, cable needle

Gauge: doesn't really matter for this scarf. Finished scarf after blocking measures 16cm (6.5in) wide and 180cm (71in) long

C3F - Slip next 3 stitches onto cable needle, hold in front, knit next 3 stitches, knit cable needle stitches

Set Up Rows:
Row 1: P1, K1, P1, K1, P3, K6, P3, K1, P1, K1, P1
Row 2: P1, K1, P1, K4, P6, K4, P1, K1, P1
Repeat Row 1 & 2 once more

Pattern:
Row 1: P1, K1, P1, K1, P3, C3F, P3, K1, P1, K1, P1
Row 2: P1, K1, P1, K4, P6, K4, P1, K1, P1
Row 3: P1, K1, P1, K1, P3, K6, P3, K1, P1, K1, P1
Repeat Rows 2 and 3  two more times. Then repeat Row 2 once more.





Cast on 20 stitches

Knit Set Up Rows once.

Knit Pattern 38 times or until scarf is desired length. Knit Rows 1 & 2 of Pattern.

Repeat Set Up Rows once.

Bind off in pattern.

Block if desired.


Feel free to shorten or lengthen your scarf by doing less... or more... of the pattern repeats.

If you make one, let me know! I'd love to see a picture!

Cheers!

  3. I think there might be a mistake in the pattern. After the first initial 3 row pattern.

    Do you knit row 2 twice then move on to knit row 3 twice? I have been knitting rows 1-3 then row 2, row 3 then row 2 and 3 again. However this results in the pattern being on the wrong side after I knit rows 1-3 again.

    Also, shouldn't the set up rows be reversed before binding off? Row 2, then Row 1?

  4. Yes, I had that same problem. I added an extra Row 2 after the final Row 3 before moving back to Row 1 and that fixed the problem. So
    Row 1, 2, 3, 2, 3, 2
    then repeat

  13. I am knitting this right now, and I don't see any problem with it. Why do people say the pattern is wrong? Maybe you have corrected the version since they have checked it. Anyway, thanks a lot for this pattern :)

  17. I finished my scarf today and it is lovely except it curls slightly. Did anyone else have this problem? I'm not sure how to fix it

  18. I am a novice knitter but love to knit. Just found your pattern for this gorgeous scarf. Since I have had some problems in the past with stitch numbers being incorrect, I checked the number of stitches and believe there is an error in row 2 of the pattern - only 17 stitches are accounted for and all other rows total 20. Can you tell me what stitch to use for the other 3. As well, do you not cable behind?

    1. I count 20 stitches on row 2 and I cabled to the front and it made a beautiful scarf.

    2. You're getting confused by the instruction "C3F". This instruction takes up 6 stitches - ignore the "3" in the middle of the instruction. So following C3F: "Slip next 3 stitches onto cable needle, hold in front, knit next 3 stitches, knit cable needle stitches = 6 stitches. So you have used up all 20 stitches. Hope this helps :-)

  22. I'm new to knitting but I think her pattern is as follows;

    S=setup rows

    First Knit: S1, S2
    Then knit pattern: row1, row2, row3, row2, row3, row2, row3, row2 (repeat until your scarf is the desired length)
    When desired length is reached knit: row2, S1, S2, and bind off.

    Does this help? I've just started and I'm at the end of the first pattern repeat and it looks correct...cable looks to be forming correctly etc. and stitch count matches up.
