Cable Heart Pattern Blocked 4″ x 4″ Gauge Swatch: 14 sts x 13 rows
The knitted scarf is created from the bottom up on straight needles using a cable needle, too. This cable stitch is not a reversible pattern, so the heart motif is only visible on the right side of your work. However, the wrong side looks pretty, too, with a smooth Stockinette design of its own.
This pattern consists of 24 cast-on stitches in 10-row repeats using 6 different cable stitches to create this beautifully detailed design.
• Yarn Super Bulky Weight #6 in any fiber or color of your choice. 300 – 318 yards (490g – 510g). I knitted my scarf with 3 balls of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn in the pink color Blossom.
