Free Cable Knit Scarf Pattern

My cable obsession continues with this super warm cable knit scarf pattern.  We are experiencing the coldest winter weather in 20 years where I live, so I thought this would be the perfect scarf to keep my daughter and myself warm during the deep freeze.   Best of all, this cozy infinity scarf is long enough that you can wrap it around twice for added warmth, but it still looks and feels great just as is.
