My aunt has recently been going though some things from breast cancer so I decided to make her something. I was looking around at patterns and couldn’t find anything I really liked until I came across Lisa Lloyd’s Pink Ribbons Socks [pdf]. I decided to turn the pattern into a scarf instead though, having the ribbons go down the middle of the scarf with seed stitch on both sides. I made the scarf in two pieces so that the ribbons would be oriented the right way during wear. The yarn is Rowan Yarns Classic Cashsoft Aran 57% extra fine merino / 33% microfibre / 10% cashmere in Burst (005) that I got at Rosie’s. I used size 7 needles. The finished length of the scarf after blocking is 68 inches. This was my first time for making cables, working from a chart, and blocking.
