NECK WARMER with Cables


CUELLO CON TRENZAS
(Knit / Dos agujas)



A lady asked me if I could make her a neck warmer, and this is what I came up with.
Una dama me pidió que le hiciera un cuello tejido, y esto es lo que me ingenié.



It is made with a 3x3 rib in the beginning and end, and the body consist of garter borders with 2 cables in the center. 
Está hecho en dos agujas con resorte 3x3 en el principio y fin, y el resto tiene un borde de sólo derechos con dos cables en el centro.



Finally, it is put in place with a wooden brooch…and ready to use. 
Finalmente, se decora con un broche de madera, y listo para usar.



Currently I am making another one in light purple, which I hope to show you soon…
Actualmente estoy haciendo otro en morado claro, el cual espero mostrarles pronto…

  7. I love this! So much more elegant than a longer, chunky scarf. Are you able to advise the needle size, wool ply, number of cast on stitches, and length? I could probably work it out from there. Although it's coming into summer here in Australia, I can definitely see myself wearing this next winter.

    1. With pleasure, Lisa! I used a chunky yarn with 8mm needles. Cast on 21 st. I think I will cast 23 next time, for a bit wider border). Make a 3x3 rib, for 18 rows. BODY: 3 knit (garter border) + 6knit (cable)+ 3Purl (between cables) + 6 knit (2nd cable)+ 3 knit (garter border).
      Aprox. length: 28 inches / 71 cms.
      I hope this info hepls for now. But I will try to write up the pattern next time--when I publish the photos of the purple I am making now.
      Let me know if you make it...

  9. Oh, Ana, this is simply gorgeous! I don't know how to knit, but this makes me want to learn. The addition of the wooden broach is the perfect touch. Thanks for sharing at Hookin On Hump Day!
