This has got to be the coolest thing ever. A reversible cable scarf = just cool.
I have knit up the Irish Hiking scarf before so I was familiar with the pattern. When I heard that Kristen had changed the pattern to make it reversible I just had to try it out. I would definitely recommend this as a mindless knitting project.
I used sport weight yarn so I added an extra cable to make it wide enough. I don't recommend doing this if you get bored with a patter quickly. This one took forever to knit but it was great for a travel project. I think using bulky weight yarn should make it a quick knit.
Yarn: Wool-Ease sport weight (discontinued)
Needles: US 6
Time frame: 9/1/07 to 10/7/07 (not my only project)
