Yesterday my friend Kathy, from Needle and Spade, shared an excellent knitting tip: how to make reversible cabled scarves. Gorgeously cabled, laced, fancy scarves and wraps are truly beautiful. But you fling them around yourself and, oops, your backside is showing. A vexation after all that knitting, who needs the heartbreak? Instead, make something looking more like the red scarf pictured here titled, Palindrome.
All back ground work is either moss or garter stitch. Each cable is worked as k1 p1 ribbing. Cable the ribbing! There you have it. Astonishing for its simplicity and brilliant! Thank you, Kathy. And don't forget stitch markers. All that k1 p1 could easily get confused.
