Cable Guy

Phase 1 of Operation Big Damned Sweater is complete:

Washburne Scarf

Stats: Washburne 2.0

Pattern: Washburne by Dizzy Blonde Designs that’s me!
Needles: US size 5 [3.75mm]
Yarn: Jo Sharp DK Wool [98 m (107 yards) 50 g (1 ¾ oz) Color: 011 Heath, 4 balls

I really enjoyed the intricacies of sussing out the cable pattern when all I had were screen-shots to work from. Now, upon closer examination I noticed that the termination points on the small “parentheses” cable is just an illusion. I chose to leave the termination points in my design, mainly to satisfy my sense of natural progression: There must be a beginning and an end. Cables that start out of nowhere and then disappear make my head explode and completely futz with my sense of symmetry.

As you can see in comparison, the termination points only add to the appeal of the pattern instead of detracting from it, and it makes for a unique variant.
