Londinium Cable Scarf Pattern


Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free

You can't take the sky from me

Take me out to the black

Tell them I ain't comin' back

Burn the land and boil the sea

You can't take the sky from me

There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity

But you can't take the sky from me

- Firefly Theme Song

Pattern: Londinium Cable Scarf (scroll down for download)
Yarn: Elann Luxury Merino Superwash DK, Tapestry Blue, 5 balls
Needles: 5mm (US8)

I can't explain why color in recent photos have been way off. It should be darker like this:

The Londinium Scarf, Cable Scarf #14 in my series of cable scarves, is a variation on the Sihnon Cable Scarf, designed for the "equal opportunity" cable knitter since the cables cross to the left and to the right. More info about the cables can be found in “the evolution of a scarf” section of the Sihnon Scarf blog post. This might provide some insight on how the cables are crossed and might make it easier to work the cables without having to refer to the pattern.

Beautiful scarf as always. I so enjoy your cable patterns the your scarves have so much personality.
I just received a wonderful gift of yarn (I think worsted weight) in a purple tweed from Ireland. Got any pattern suggestions? I would like to use one of your patterns but I'm not sure if they would work with a heavier weight yarn.
