I have a huge weakness for something sweet alongside my coffee—
especially fudge packaged in pretty twists of shiny paper. The cable pattern used in this scarf brings these beauties to mind! The scarf is worked flat from end to end, and you have the option to finish it with a deep fringe. The cable pattern is engaging but straightforward, so you can concentrate on coffee and chatting, not the pattern.

About 72” (183 cm) long without fringe and 12” (30.5 cm) wide.

Aran weight (#4 medium).
Shown here: Native Yarns Rendlesham (100% Bluefaced Leicester wool; 175 yd 160 m/3½ oz 100 g): silva, 5 skeins.

Size U.S. 6 (4 mm).
Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

2 cable needles (cn); tapestry needle; scissors (for fringe).

26 sts and 28 rows = 4” (10 cm) in Cable Stitch patt after blocking.

-The cable stitches can be worked as per the instructions; this is the purist’s way and matches up with standard charting symbols. There’s also an alternative way to work these cables, which is swifter to knit and less fiddly. This is given in the Stitch Guide. Consider trying them both out in a swatch and deciding which method you like best. The appearance of the cables is identical when viewed from the front of the scarf. Personally, I prefer the back of the “cheat” version as it has a smoother, less bobbly appearance. The choice, as they say, is yours!
