Harbor Scarf

Lion Brand® Fishermen's Wool®


30 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) over Cable Pattern.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


2/2 LC (2 over 2 left cross) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k2, then k2 from cable needle.
2/2 RC (2 over 2 right cross) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k2, then k2 from cable needle.

Seed Stitch (over an even number of sts)
Row 1 (RS):
*K1, p1; rep from * across.
Row 2: P the knit sts, and k the purl sts.
Rep Row 2 for Seed st.


1. Scarf is worked in one piece. Center 40 sts are worked in Cable Pattern, remaining sts in Seed st for borders. Stitch markers are used to separate the Seed st sections from the Cable Pattern.
2. Cable Pattern can be worked by following the written instructions or by following the chart.
3. The first and last 3 sts of each row are worked in Seed st for borders and are NOT shown on chart.

Harbor Scarf Reviewed by palenque1978 on 2013-04-11 *****
I thoroughly enjoy knitting this pattern. It's intricate, but not difficult to knit.

This scarf is quite versatile; good for men and women/girls. Dark colors for men and "fairer" colors for the ladies.

Warning: It takes a long time to make. It's not a jiffy-to-make scarf; but, well worth the effort.
