I am in love with cables. Give me any pattern with cables, I’ll knit it. There’s something about the fact how the simple movements of transferring stitches from one side to another create a piece truly remarkable and unique. That’s why the project for my other Grandma HAD to be covered by cables.


Cable Knitted ScarfI was looking for the cable scarf pattern for several weeks. I wanted to create something gorgeous, but at the same time functional, that would keep my Granny warm during long Russian winters.

I found this project on Ravelry and when I read the headline – I wanted to do something special for a special “nonna” (Italian word for “Granny”) – I thought, well, it’s meant to be knit.

I used the same local yarn, but in a different shade and with 3 strands. The fabric turned out soft, with a great stitch definition and with a slight lustre. This color is so lovely. It will be perfect for my Granny’s brown eyes.
