Reversible Cable Scarf

This scarf is completely reversible; there is no right or wrong side. I chose three colors of yarn and kept knitting with one until it was nearly all gone, then changed to the next color. You can work up this scarf in any weight yarn you choose. Of course a differing yarn weight will require different needles and will result in different measurements, so keep that in mind when choosing a substitute yarn.

The stitch pattern is presented in written format.
