Frog in knots

Knitting, knots and frogging.

This scarf was inspired by the gorgeous Lily Chin Reversible Rib Shawl (which I still haven't finished). I desperately needed a brown scarf and fell in love the wonderful cinnamon colourway in Wendy Fusion that was a perfect match to many of my things.

I am delighted with the results and wanted to share the pattern with you. It's quick and easy to make and would look great in any chunky yarn. While it's not a particularly long scarf you can thread it through one of the cables for the 'keyhole' look if that's what you prefer.

Yarn: 2 x Wendy Fusion 50% wool/ 50% acrylic (single plied), 50g, 88m (96 yds) per ball
Needles: 6mm / US 10
Tension: 16 sts x 20 rows = 4" square.
Dimensions: 10cm (4") wide x 132cm (52") long

2x2 rib = *k2,p2. Repeat from * to end.

Cable row: k2, p2, C-rib24B, k2, p2.

C-rib24B = slide 12 sts onto a cable needle and hold to the back of the work, (k2, p2) 3 times from the left needle, (k2, p2) 3 times from the cable needle.

Cast on 32 sts

Work 2x2 rib for 19 rows.
Work cable row

**Work 2x2 rib for 29 rows
Work cable row
Repeat from ** 6 times more

Work 2x2 rib for 19 rows.
Cast off in rib.

What a fantastic idea for a scarf! If I can ever bring myself to knit anything resembling the RRS again, I just might give this a try.

I just noticed that I never commented on this lovely scarf. The shawl it's derived from is one of those things I regularly drool over. But I love, love, love your adaptation. A scarf isn't as big a commitment, and it can be worn with more things than a full-sized shawl.

The colorway you picked is gorgeous. Browns are definitely your colors!

I don't know you, but I like you! This pattern rocks! It is something that I could actually make! Thank you!

Happy Valentines Day!

I am trying to knit this scarf, but it´s getting a little hard for me to do it, since I am not an English speaker, but Spanish. Would you do me the favor to explain it more? Thank you in advance. Perla from Chile
