Puddles? One would think the cable pattern reminded me of the ripples in a puddle. Or that this scarf would be perfect for a rainy day. But no. My dad asked for a “cabley” scarf for when he walks the doggies at night. And Puddles, as you know, is one of those doggies.
Puddles...aka The Dog-Walking Scarf by Irishgirlieknits ravel it!

This pattern is a multiple of 6 stitches plus 2 stitches (1 stitch at each end). The pattern can easily be modified in width or used with thinner yarns (e.g., I can’t wait to make a worsted weight version with my new Plucky Knitter Merino Cashmere Nylon Worsted yarn! I’ll add those modifications when I do!).
