Knitted Scarves

Two new scarves that I recently knitted as birthday presents for friends.
The one on the left is a pattern called Old Shale - such a fun and easy pattern to knit!
It's easy to memorize and I love the wavy lines it creates.
The one on the right is a simple twisted cable pattern that I just kind of figured out as I went along.

Cast on 38 stitches
Work in multiples of 18 stitches (+2)
Row 1 - Knit entire row
Row 2 - K1 - Purl row - K1
Row 3 - K1 - (K2tog)x 3 - (YO, K1)x6 - (K2tog)x6 - (YO, K1)x6 - (K2tog)x3 - K1
Row 4 - Knit entire row


  1. These are beautiful! What yarn did you use?

  2. Thanks Rebecca!
    It's wool - I actually recycled the yarn from an old thrifted sweater.

  3. Beautiful scarves! I like the simple twisted cable pattern :) DO you have HowTo on it? I'm very interested to learn that pattern. I'll this to my Favorite's List :)

    If I recall from memory, the cable pattern went like this:

    Cast on 38 sts
    Rows 1,3,5,7: K6, P2, repeat for entire row, end with K6
    Rows 2,4,6,8,10: P6, K2, repeat for entire row, end with P6
    Row 9: sl 3sts onto CN, hold at back, K3, then K3 from CN, P2, repeat for entire row.
    Repeat rows 1-10

    (CN=Cable Needle)

    Hope I got that right!
