Rustic Crochet Cable Scarf - Free Crochet Pattern

Free pattern #FriYAY and on to the first pattern of the new year! This one was inspired by all of the folks that commented on the table runner pattern - saying that it would make a great scarf! I tried it out as a scarf when I was packing up the holiday decorations... it didn't work so well so I adapted the pattern with a smaller gauge and a softer yarn. Take a look and let me know what you think!


New to crochet cables? Don't worry, we've got you covered. We've included step-by-step photos on how to work the "trickier" parts and we've also started a video tutorial series. You've got this!


Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
