Pattern Notes

Ushna Scarf is worked bottom up, back and forth in one piece. Once the required stitches are CO, the stitch count remains the same on all rows until BO. Blocking is required to set the cables.
To make the scarf longer, simply work more repeats of Cable pattern.
If substituting yarn, choose a wool-based yarn which shows off the cables and takes well to blocking.

Pattern

CO 47 sts using knitted cast on method.
Work 10 rows in Ribbing Pattern.
Work Row 2 of Cable Pattern.
Work Rows 1-84 of Cable Pattern 3 times.
Work Rows 1-35 once more.
Work next 10 rows in Ribbing Pattern. 

Finishing

BO all stitches.
Weave in ends. Block well. yarn ball
