The Phyllis scarf

A few weeks ago Phyllis waltzes into our LYS announcing her new masterpiece - a most beautiful reversible cabled scarf in the most sumptuously soft wool I've felt in a long time.


It's Skacel's Adagio. I had to make it. It looked like a fast project that I could insert into the million others I had going on including some very seriously testy deadline projects (one being a scarf I offered as an auction win that has turned into a bit of problem - I'll post about that one once I've solved the problem).

Sunday night, I stayed up late to get started. I really indulged myself because I turned on a movie too and had the best time. I watched Prime and I actually laughed out loud! Here's my progress. What do you think?




I think this is suppose to be a gift idea for a man. However, with apologies to all the men in my life, ain't no man getting this one. It's just for little ol' me.

Beautiful Scarf and I love the colour! (I would keep it too.)

I adore the cables in this color...must feel luxurious because it looks that way in the photo! I wouldn't give it up as a gift either.

Pattern is readily available at the Lion Brand website, search their free patterns for Reversible Cable Scarf.
I used about 200 yards of the Skacel.
Enjoy, it's a quick knit once you get rolling.
