Lacy Cables Scarf by Annette Petavy
The core of this scarf is formed with waves of cables and 1×1 ribs, bordered by garter stitch. Because the cable is reversible, there is no wrong side or right side for the pattern.

You’ll draw upon your knitting skills to shape the yarn around each crocheted motif in this sweater design. On the rounds follow the bobble round, work double crochet around bobble to make it “pop” to the right side. A clever crochet technique forms the seams that pull the garment together and add even more fun.
