Piper Lake // a cable and lace scarf knitting pattern by Tabetha Hedrick
Lush cables and a hint of lace promise fun and engagement throughout this gorgeous, cosy scarf. Pair that with a refreshing twist on the regular ol’ scarf shape, and you’ve got an accessory that is deliciously wrappable and ready for fall.
Piper Lake is worked from end to end, beginning with a few stitches and increasing to width, working even until close to desired length, and then decreasing back to a few stitches. It’s finished off with some fun tassels.
The 6-page pattern PDF features both written and charted instructions.
