Sitka - Reversible Cabled Scarf

Sitka is a lovely blend of 80% Merino Wool and 20% Kid Mohair.  There is a lovely subtle sheen from the mohair and great memory from the wool.  It was a real treat to work with and worked up very quickly.


I created a reversible cabled scarf - one skein is about 30" long, so two would be 60".  While out in Michigan I tripped over a Jul closure that I thought suited it nicely - what was really nice is that no button holes were required.


So here is the pattern:
