Sparkly Cabled Scarf

16 Dec

I just finished this project, and am pretty darn proud of myself- the pattern calls for a skill level of “intermediate”, yay me!

 

The pattern comes from She Shoots Sheep Shots and is called “Lamar”. I found this yarn on sale at Michaels it’s called Dewdrops by Loops and Threads and the color is appropriately named “Diamond”. It’s a super chunky yarn, so the project went really quickly after I learned the cable part. I have no idea why I had so much anxiety about cables. It was so easy, just a rib knit, setting aside a few stitches on a separate cable needle every couple rows. The pattern called for 3 skeins of yarn but I went and used 4. It still seems a little short, but it is soooooo thick and warm there is no need to wrap it around more than once.

I’m not keeping this one for myself, its a Christmas/Thank You present for part of a pair of wonderful people who have been helping me out lately, now off to make something for the other! I’m thinking a guy would not want his scarf to sparkle right?

If you are looking for a knit/crochet project, look no further than Ravelry.com . You can search for a pattern to suit your favorite yarn, specify the recipient of your project (male, female, child, baby, pet) and a great number of the patterns are free! I love it, you can find me on there as bekhiann. I haven’t filled up my notebook yet, but I love seeing everyone else’s projects! Someone told me the other day they think knitting and handmade gifts are coming back into vogue. The general public is catching on- this isn’t just a little old ladies game anymore, we can make so much more than ugly Christmas sweaters!!
