Gingersnap Scarf

Pattern adapted by my super talented knitting friend Zarah:

Heavy worsted weight yarn, approx 385 yards (280g)
Size 9 needles, or size recommended for your yarn
Cable needle

Cast on 64 sts using your favorite cast on method.

Row 1 : (RS) *K2, P2* across
Rows 2, 3 & 4: Repeat Row 1
Row 5: (RS) *K2, P2* across 28 sts, C8F, *K2, P2* to end  (cable should fall in center)
Row 6: Repeat Row 1
Repeat rows 1-6 for desired length, ending with row 4.
Bind off in K2, P2 pattern.
Weave in the ends.

Flip scarf over and over and marvel at it’s reversibility!
Key to reversible cables:
C8F: Slip 4 sts to a cable needle and hold to front, K2, P2 from your left needle, then K2, P2 from the cable needle.
