My sister picked out this yarn a long time ago, over a year ago. It’s one Cascade 220 “Heathers” colors, green with some bright blue and yellow mixed in. I’ve been looking for the “perfect” pattern for it. I finally gave up and made one based on a stitch pattern the Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns. At first I wasn’t sure and I think this is the third attempt, but I love it! Cables and lace wow! I want to do more of this combo! It will be warm without being dense. Plus the pattern was interesting enough to keep my attention, but easy enough to memorize.
I was surprised when blocking made it wider and shorter, rather than wider and longer, but it’s still plenty long. See my helper while I’m blocking? That’s Simon if I sit down he’ll try to sneak on my lap. He only does this when I’m try to do something, little stinker. 🙂
I’m really happy with it and I hope the recipient loves it as much as I do!

I made a matching hat for it that will be the feature of tomorrows post. As much as I love the scarf I think I love the hat more. I’ll be making one for me soon!
