Your Adventure Awaits Scarf Free Knitting Pattern

Adventure Awaits Scarf

The inspiration for this pattern comes from a hat I saw in an outdoor retailer magazine. It is my own take on that hat and scarf set from a well-known outdoor brand. It is knit back and forth. It’s an easy cabled scarf consisting 2 cables separated by a honeycomb-style panel.

This is a fast knit and along with the hat can make a fabulous holiday gift set!
