Wrap this around your neck

Since i have been Mobius'sing for my daughters Jerta en Hyke, i wanted to knit something for my other daughter Anke. She doesn't like Mobius scarfs, so she picked a pattern from the Ravelry database, Cabled Scarf by Cathy Allen.

I bought Big Cotton from Lang, a beautiful and soft bulky yarn. I bought and started on december 30, and while staying at hers for New Years eve, i finished it on januari 1st! The finished measurements are 195 cm x 20cm. I used needles 6 mm (US 10) and 5 skeins. I was amazed myself, how quickly it was done:)

I slightly altered the pattern, because in the original pattern the sides are some stitches in Gartner stitch, that gives a fairly bumpy side, Anke didn't like that. Instead i slipped the first stitch of every needle purlwise, that gave beautiful smooth sides.


As you can see, she is very pleased with it:)
