Antler scarf

grandcarriage's picture

I'm going to do the antler scarf from "Son of Stitch and Bitch"...I have a really nice yarn, shades of gold, green, silver and chocolate that may hide the pattern a bit, but I think will be lovely.

Have any of you guys done this scarf?

Looks like an interesting

Looks like an interesting scarf - the examples I've seen do like it's a narrow scarf so of course I'm wondering how a reversible version would look.....

and then of course working one from the center out so the ends would be the same, or grafting two half scarves; or a "seamens scarf" version.....

gad! It's beginning to be I can't look at a pattern without thinking of half a dozen variations.

of course you could make it

of course you could make it so that it was "symmetrical" by just adding the number of of repeats...and you'd have almost a chevron cable pattern goin on.

Great minds think alike:

Great minds think alike: Adaptations.
I upped the needle size 3 times cause the cables pulled the scarf too much and lost all drape, added 3 garter stitches to each end and framed each of the cables with two stitches of purl, which twist every 4 rows (to provide some wrong side interest)...I'm also thinking that I'd like to make the antler cable more "tree like". I also changed yarns to "Arancana Magellanica" (spelling wrong, I'm sure) kind of a really thick thin knock off of Malabrigo or Manos.

I'm thinking that what I'm going to do is a "theme and variations scarf", but perhaps not in this yarn, as it hides quite a lot of detail...I do however love the texture: Very Andy Goldsworthy "Time and Tides" sort of feeling to it...The pattern is lost until the light hits it a certain way and then all the texture jumps out at you... Photos to come at some point.

I have the book and have

I have the book and have knitted several things out of it - I am currently working on the cable guy sweater with some modifications -but have not tried the antler scarf. it is a beautiful, masculine scarf and your color selection sounds great. would love to see pics when you are done.
