I recently published a new pattern, the Cabled Scarflette.  I've been working on it for quite a while, exploring different ideas and options and deciding the best way to write up the instructions.  I first made a prototype of this scarflette about 5 years ago, so it has been in the queue to be published for quite a while.

The pattern creates a pass-through scarflette with a short ruffled frill on one end, and a longer one on the other.  It hugs the neck nicely, and can be made in a Women's size small, medium, or large.  The slots on each end of the body of the scarf are made by dividing the body stitches onto two needles, and knitting a short ribbed panel on each set of stitches.  Then the stitches are "zipped together" onto one needle again, and the longer frill is knitted onto the combined stitches.

In playing around with the design, I came up with two different frill patterns, and since I couldn't decide between them, I decided to include both in the pattern.  Here are the two options:

Closeup of Leafy Frill pattern

Each of these frills can be made a bit wider, if desired.   I have made the scarflette up in several different worsted-weight is a sampling.

This is a fun pattern to knit; it has both charts and written instructions so you can choose to work in the manner that is most comfortable for you.  Happy knitting!
