If you would like to use this pattern to make a scarf for the Red Scarf Project, send me an e-mail with "Chrysopoeia for RSP" in the subject line and I will send you a free copy. You're on the honor system.
Chrysopoeia uses ribbed cables on a garter stitch background to create a fully reversible scarf. It's easy--seven of every eight rows are worked in exactly the same way. Once I got into the groove, I churned it out in four evenings of TV-watching. Both charted and written instructions are included.
Price: $4.50 (USD)
Yarn Required: Approximately 440 yards of an aran- or worsted-weight yarn that cables well. (Pictured: Hobby Lobby “I Love This Wool!” in Sungold – 2 skeins/200 grams/438 yards, 93% wool/7% polyamide).
