This is another recent scarf I made. It's a long (70 inch) skinny (2.5 inch) scarf from two skeins of elsebeth lavold Angora, which is 60% Angora, 20% Wool and 20% Polyamide. It's a rich mossy green.I used a cable pattern called banjo stitch that I found in one of my knitting books. I added a two stitch rib on each side and an inch of k1 p1 ribbing on each end, then I blocked it to flatten it out. I've also finished my lace rabbit tracks scarf now, so I'm thinking of putting the banjo scarf into my etsy shop. Here's a detail of the banjo cable stitch. It's a bit complicated, this one is a 16-row repeat.Lovely for cool Spring evenings!
