Introducing Elbac scarves. (Elbac = the reverse of "cable".....) These are two different cable scarves which are completely reversible.
Imagine my SURPRISE and joy when I learned that my Knitty submission was "gonna make it after all" (my apologies to Mary Tyler Moore). (Photo by DH.)These are scarves which look nice on any body. (Photo by Elizabeth Morrison.)
See what I mean?
I had been thinking about making a scarf for my dad, and I loved the look of all of the scarves people were making which had cables running lengthwise on them. As a knitter, I would make sure that the cables were showing nicely every time I wore such a scarf, but my dad? Probably not. So, I started reading and thinking about ways to get a similar look which was reversible. (Now I'd better get busy on a scarf for Dad, because I don't think pink and aqua are his favorite colors.....)
