A reversible ribbed cable scarf, final dimensions 8 inches/18cm wide and 72 inches/1.5 meters long.

Materials: Four balls "Uros Aran" from the Peruvian Collection, available here. 50% wool, 50% llama, 50 gram ball, approx 83 meters or 91 yards. Color 3427. (For substitution, any worsted weight yarn would do.)

Gauge: Six stitches to one inch, over pattern, on size 11/8mm needles. NOTE: I knit tightly. If you knit at all loosely, I suggest size 10/6.5mm needles, or even size 9/5.5mm.

A cable needle will also be helpful.

Cast on 48 stitches. Work 5 rows in k1p1 rib. On row 6, work "Cable row one". Work 7 rows of k1p1 rib. On the next row, work "Cable row two". Essentially, you will work a cable row every 8th row, alternating between Cable Row One and Cable Row Two. When the scarf is the desired length (the scarf shown has 15 repeats), work a final Cable Row Two, work 5 rows of k1p1 rib, and bind off. Wash, lay flat, and let dry.

Cable row one: Work 16 stitches in k1p1 rib. *Put 4 stitches on cable needle, hold in front, work next 4 stitches in k1p1 rib, work held stitches in k1p1 rib, work 8 stitches in k1p1 rib* Repeat the directions in the *s 2 times total.

Cable row two: Work 8 stitches in k1p1 rib. *Put 4 stitches on cable needle, hold in front, work next 4 stitches in k1p1 rib, work held stitches in k1p1 rib, work 8 stitches in k1p1 rib* Repeat the directions in the *s 2 times total, work 8 stitches in k1p1 rib.

I admit. I'm a lurker. I've been stalking your blog for ... something like five months now. But I'll definitely be adding this scarf to the somewhat lengthy list of things that need knitting. Thanks!

Thank you, Julie, for the Watery Cables scarf pattern. I am a first time poster, but have been reading your blog. I am loving the experience of knitting this scarf because of the unusual way the cables appear across the surface of the fabric. They appear to be "rolling in", as waves do on the beach. Knit on.

I knit this gorgeous scarf. The yarn I used was Patons Grace, which is cotton, so I can wear it down here in the South anytime I want. I selected a lighter blue color than your photo (personal preference - knitter's choice). It was a fun and easy knit and I have received a zillion compliments already. Thanks!

I just picked up the yarn for this today, so that I can knit this for my Gram. My Gramps just passed away, and she really deserves something nice and homemade...and seeing as she taught me how to knit...

Lovely pattern, so unique.
