Irish Hiking Scarf

Just finished the Irish Hiking Scarf. I made one previously in red for the Red Scarf Project, but decided to see what it looked like in more of an Aran color. I really enjoy this pattern-- it's actually relaxing to knit and looks more difficult than it is.

That looks great. Really nice color.

Have you tried the Palindrome scarf yet? It's cool because the cables show on both sides.

I knitted a sweater for my grandson using that cable rib combination...very satisfying... I'm doing a reversible cable baby blanket...

Great stuff!!!! That pattern is so effective - classic design! Stephen I know what you mean when you say that it's not as hard as it looks. Non-knitters always comment on cables and say how intricate the work is. But don't forget there IS a fair bit of skill involved. Signs of a good knitter are being able to do a range of techniques, doing them well and finding them relaxing. So mate I think that definitely puts you in the good kniiter category!!

I love Aran designs.

These simple cables are just plain wonderful to look at -- for their simplicity, really.

You did excellent work.
