In addition to being an incredibly warm winter accessory, Lucy Sweetland’s multi-directional scarf is an adventurous knitting process! Rich, knotted cables travel the asymmetric Center Panel, which also features a slipped-stitch texture pattern along one side. To finish, textured panels are worked at each end in a perpendicular direction and attached to the Center Panel as they are made. The entire piece is trimmed with a built-in I-Cord frame for a clean, finished look.

Note: Shorter Version uses virtually all of the 5th skein. You may wish to buy an additional skein for safety, especially if you plan to do extensive swatching. Alternatively, you may leave off one repeat of the cable if you are running low on yarn.
