The Carrie Scarf
The Carrie Scarf is done! And, before the Closing Ceremonies at that. I'm very happy with how it turned out. It will make a great addition to my winter wardrobe. This scarf was inspired by the one worn by Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City movie. (I hope to look much happier wearing it than she did however!)
The pattern is pretty straight forward. I'm posting it below in case anyone is interested in making one for themselves.
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Wool, approximately 3 skeins
CO – cast on
SS – seed stitch
BO – bind off
P – purl
K - knit
Cast on 62 stitches and work in seed stitch for 1 inch. Finish on wrong side.
Cable row: Work first 9 stitches in SS. Put 4 stitches on cable needle and knit four stitches. Knit the four stitches on cable needle. Work 10 stitches in SS. Cable the next 8 stitches. Work 10 stitches in SS. Cable the next 8 stitches. Work 9 remaining stitches in SS.
Regular rows: For next row, work 9 stitches in SS, P 8, SS 10, P 8, SS 10, P 8 and SS 9. For the following row, do same except knit the purls. Continue this pattern for 9 additional rows (11 rows total).
Follow the directions for cable row.
Follow the directions for regular rows.
Continue with pattern until scarf is close to desired length.
Work in seed stitch for 1 inch. BO and enjoy your new cabled scarf!
