Finished Scarf!

I suppose I joined this KAL a little bit late to get in on the WIP action, but there are more scarves planned for the future, so it's all good...

Here's my finished version of the IHS, made for my husband's birthday this year. I decided to modify the pattern and try a braided cable, which was relatively easy to do. I used Schachenmayr Alpaka and I must say that I'm quite pleased with the results!

If anyone is interested in trying the braided cable, let me know and I'll write out the pattern - it's quick and easy, I promise :)

ETA: Go to for the pattern - it's in the post from today, called "All Knitting, All the Time" (Sorry I'm not better with links)

It's beautiful -- I love the alpaca halo ! I'd love to have the braided cable pattern too.

I also would love the braided pattern, I have finished 2 Irish Hiking Scarves and am still not bored with cables! Thanks for sharing your work!

That looks amazingly soft. I like your variation; the braids remind me of bread!

LOVE that braided cable - where can I find the pattern? Is it in the Harmony Aran Stitches book?

Jo, I bet the braided cable is in the Harmony Aran Stitches book - I think I remember seeing it, although I don't have it on hand right now. It's also in Harmony Vol. 2 - the 9-stitch plait on page 74 (softcover ed.)
