This aran-style cable-crochet scarf uses front and back post crochet to create extraordinary cables. The soft drape and beautiful texture of the scarf will make it a staple of your wardrobe and possibly your new favorite accessory.

This pattern is written as a crochet chart that indicates the repeatable cabling section, allowing you to choose your own length for the scarf. The lace-inspired edging is also included on the chart and indicates repeatable or removable sections, so you can create variations, customize the lace or leave off the edging all together and make an infinity scarf.

The cables pop out beautifully in a bold or light color (dark or variegated colors may hide the details) and choose a yarn that will show the stitch definition (avoid anything particularly fuzzy).

Gauge: 20 dc stitches/row for 11 rows = 4”x4” square.

Oof, cables are hard! But this chart is very easy to follow and the seller is very helpful with answering questions. Great tutorial!

This is a beautiful pattern that works up quickly into a really stunning scarf. I was a little anxious about buying the pattern because I've never worked off of a chart before, but it's very clear and easy to understand. Thanks!

Wish there was more than just a chart, I haven't had experience with chart reading yet, but the scarf itself looks pretty in the picture!
