Californian Puddles

I love cables. And I love scarves. When Irishgirlie made this pattern, I was head-over-heels. The cables aren't too close together, so the fabric is fairly flat, and they look like little rivers, or waves on a (calm) beach. This scarf is made with Aslan Trends Artesanal. It's a tweedy, soft yarn, containing cotton and alpaca. It was quite a joy to work with.
This scarf is for display in Gabriella's yarn shop.
My plan is to knit up the Woobu (Obsidian) I bought at Stitches into this pattern, for Tommy, for next fall. In the meantime, I'll be looking for a good hat pattern to match.

Ooh! I love the tweediness of that yarn! Cotton and alpaca, eh? Sounds intriguing...

Love the way the cables look in it, too!

Beautiful scarf! Maybe Irishgirlie will come up with a matching hat pattern. :)
