Reversible Cabled Mega Scarf - knit in Magnum Paints


Tis the season for quick knits.  Decided it was time to play with Magnum again - our extra bulky wool that is the epitome of instant gratification.  So I grabbed one of my favorite colorways of Magnum Paints and decided on a reversible cabled scarf.  The result has been a quick and warm scarf with interesting color pooling.

  2. Hi I'm trying to make a hat, thinking I just need regular 4 ply yarn, it calls for cascade fixation, but never hearing of this I had to look it up. Is this yarn like a finger yarn or sport weight? My hat is turning out too large using a smaller crochet hook and 4 ply cotton yarn.
