Ocean Scarf

After getting a few compliments from wearing this beautiful, bright blue scarf, I thought I'd share the pattern with you.  I not only love the color of this scarf, but I love how pretty the cabling is, even though it is a very simple cable to create.  It would be a great project for someone who is beginning to play with cables, and you get used to the techniques needed very quickly.  I hope you like this scarf as much as I do!  If you decide to use this pattern, I would love to see your finished product!  Just send me a picture of any projects you've completed from patterns on this blog by filling out my contact form!

  1. A close-up photo of the scarf showing the design would be great, please! I like being able to compare what I'm working on with what it's supposed to look like. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thank you so much for your advice! Since I'm still starting out with this blog, I need as much of it as I can get! I will definitely get a close up picture for you as soon as I can. :)
