Hefty garter stitch texture and a few eyelets accentuate the bold mock rib cable to make a strong statement in this reversible unisex scarf. Knit in a light, squishy yarn, it would be an appealingly cozy holiday treat for just about anyone. Which makes this a terrific make ahead gift to knit now and decide about later. Knit long and slinky in a yarn blend with some silky shine, this scarf becomes a knockout accessory to wear with a strappy evening dress. Quadruple or quintuple the stitch count (and yardage requirement) to devise a deliciously cozy blanket; may also be worked in strips as written and joined later for a more portable blanket project.
