New Patterns (Two!): Rhoda's Scarf and Brenda - Women's Hat

Rhoda's Scarf 

Sometimes you simply need a scarf to complete your look. By special request, this scarf has been designed to coordinate with the Gracie hat pattern. 

The pattern begins with a lace edge. Stitches are then picked up for the main body of the scarf featuring a wide cable framed with gooseberry bobbles, worked back and forth to half the desired length. A duplicate half is then knit and the two halves are seamed at the center back. 

Instructions are given for two sizes: Child (40") and Teen/Adult (58")  Shown in Cascade 220 (Oyster).  Yardage: 235 (335)
Tools: Size US 7 (4.5mm) straight needles, stitch holder, tapestry needle, and cable needle. Row counter is helpful.

Rhoda, thank you for the inspiration!
