Braided Cables Winter Scarf Knitting Pattern

My cable obsession continues with this super warm braided infinity scarf.  We are experiencing the coldest winter weather in 20 years where I live, so I thought this would be the perfect scarf to keep me and my daughter warm during the deep freeze.   Its long enough that you can wrap it around twice for added warmth, but it still looks and feels great just as is.

  1. I am crackers about cables and am starting this today. It’s stunning. I would cable my whole house if I could !! I had the same obsession about covered buttons. Padded things then dimpled them with the coveted buttons. Perhaps “padded” is where they will drag me off to. ” A PADDED CELL “. So long as it’s cabled to Ibwill he fine. Ha ha

  2. I am a 3rd of the way through and can’t believe how elegant but easy this pattern is. I don’t even need the pattern anymore it’s so easy to remember. Looks amazing! Well done!

  3. I made this cabled scarf as a Christmas gift for a college age girl last year. It is elegant, easily coordinates with casual and dressy outerwear and is warm and wonderful. Going to make one for myself this year. It is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you

    1. Hi Annika, I’m a fast knitter so it took me just a few hours of knitting. It all depends on how quickly you knit. I have noticed that my knitting speed drastically improved once I switched over to continental style knitting.

  4. This is beautiful and I need to make “3”!!!
    for 3 special family members…..i would like to know if this cb done as straight scarf,and if so,increase length to ??.tx,i have the yarn suggested in color suggested and can’t wait to start.
    It is such a beautiful pattern,you take the guesswork out of trying to come up with a beautiful cable pattern.thank you😊

    1. Hi Jen! You are very welcome! The length as it is is great for a straight scarf too. I would suggest adding some tassels to the ends to finish it off 🙂

  5. Hi there. I purchased this pattern in January 2017 and as I said at the time I am obsessed with Cables (thanks for your comment Jennifer!) I have managed to avoid that padded cell. and I actually turned this pattern into a huge Throw for my Daughter. It’s the biggest project I haven’t undertaken and I had to do it in 2 parts then join it. It looks absolutely gorgeous and my Daughter loves it. Thank you sooo much again for a stunning pattern.
