Classic Cables Scarf
Created By:
Pattern Source: other:

My biggest challenge in this pattern is knitting and purling through the back loop especially when working on the wrong side. Also the scarf edge looks crocked when knitting/purling through the back loop. I started another scarf and replaced the knitting/purling through the back loop with regular knitting/purling. I don’t like the results as the regular knitting/purling seem wider and form a thick featureless bar between the cables. Unlike the knitting/purling through the back loop that produces thin well-defined double bars.
Also in my first one I used size 7 & 8 needles and in my second one I used size 8 & 10. I like the one with the smaller needle better because the cables’ outlines are sharper while with the larger needles the cables seem flat and ill-defined at some parts.
In my second one I casted 55 stitches and the sides look better than when casting 56 and reducing one.
