A Naughty Scarf

I must be in a knotty mood these days *wink* *wink* This is Dawn Brocco's Double Knot Cable Scarf pattern knit with worsted weight hand-dyed cashmere. Sigh. In fact, this scarf is so yummy it's good enough to eat - so I'm presenting it on a cake plate!

Mr Puffy insisted that I must knit something in Cashmere, at least once. He's such an enabler.

I quote directly from the pattern "Cables undulate. Their curves beckon to be noticed, and how better to notice them than to not have anything else surrounding them!" (emphasis added). Gotta love that.

I thought it best that I have a statue "stand in" for me (wrong sex, but it's the best I could do on short notice).

Project Specs:
Double Knot Cable Scarf by Dawn Brocco
US 8 needles
Finished Length: 76 inches
Yarn: Tess' Designer Yarn - hand-dyed Cashmere (FYI - this yarn was from the remnants of a special order for another customer and I do not believe she carries this weight cashmere as a stock item).

Another knotty side to me has decided what to knit with my Tilli Tomas Aspen yarn (sky-drop blue). I'm going to knit Stephanie Japel's (Gramprye's Knit) Cable-Down Raglan (Interweave Magazine - Spring 2007) a pattern that has enough knots to please anyone! There is a KAL for this project and so many beautiful interpretations that I am quite inspired!

In case you were wondering, yes, I am still knitting away on Flo. I'm making slow but steady progress :)

It seems from the quote of the book, it was right! Wonderful presentation of this scarf. Lovely color, looks soft and squooshy. Seeing it, makes me want to run to my needles, and get going, even thought I've done nothing but knit over the last week. Looking forward to you next knotty project! :o)

Well, at least Mr Puffy is an enabler with good taste ... :-)

That is a really cool scarf, I love the way it slinks along.

I'm curious to see how your raglan turns out, I love that pattern!

That is lovely! You always make the most gorgeous knits. And in cashmere. Yum.

I'm going to go find that pattern!

I love the color so much. It looks so soft and cozy and like it should smell of strawberries!

Hi Jo. What a fun idea! I don't have any strawberry perfume - but will definately wear my Dewberry when I where this scarf :)

I love this pink scarf, especially since the edges mirror the curves of the cables.

Beautiful scarf!

Cashmere, eh? I need to start talking to Mr. Puffy. It must be SO soft.

Mr Puffy is quite the enabler. But, at least he's enabling you to do good things, like knit with cashmere. Nice scarf!
