I finally finished my winter farming scarf. While on the farm during cold days I soon discovered that none of my scarfs were cutting it. The ones that I had suitable to withstand the cold on the farm were too precious for me to want to get dirty and gritty. So, I decided to knit myself a farm scarf from a 100% fuzzy cotton yarn that I’ve had for nearly a year. I used 10mm (size 15) needles, and a basic Crossed Cable pattern.

Multiples of 8 sts plus 6

Rows 1 and all WS rows: *K2, P2, rep from * to last 2 sts, K2.

Rows 2, 4, and 6: *P2, K2, rep from * to last 2 sts, P2.

Row 8: *P2, C6F, rep from *to last 6 sts, P2, K2, P2

Rows 10, 12, and14: *P2, K2, rep from * to last 2 sts, P2.

Row 16: P2, K2, P2, *C6B, P2, rep from * to end.

I repeated these 16 rows until I got my finished product, a 7 foot 3 inch gloriously warm and cozy scarf.
