Heartland Tweed yarn in gray. I love its little specks of color...
[Edited] I found this free pattern, began it while I had it on the computer screen, memorized it, turned computer off, and NEVER bookmarked it or downloaded it!!! What was I thinking! It was free and I am almost sure I was on Ravelry when I found it. The link took me to this cool blog with the pattern. I spent hours looking for it tonight to no avail.
So, I am writing the pattern down right here so I don't forget it. As soon as I find it I will update this blog to give credit to the knitter. I remember one of the comments on her blog was from a lady who had made the scarf but used 2 skeins instead of one to make a longer scarf, which is what I did.
Here it goes (from someone who has never written a knitting pattern):
Cast on 52 stitches.
R1: *k2, p2, c2 in front (transfer 2 stitches to cable needle, holding it in front), k2, k2 from cable needle*, repeat from * to * till the end.
R2: *p2, k2, p4, k2, p2*, repeat from * to * till the end.
R3: *k2, p2, k4, p2, k2*, repeat from * to * till the end.
R4: repeat row 2.
repeat rows 1-4 until you reach desired lenght.
Have a warm and busy Friday!
