Published in Interweave Knits!

I'm very excited to report that I have been published by Interweave Knits, one of my favorite magazines, and one of the most prestigious ones in my opinion. I've always admired their designs as they always have style, and feature unique details that make every design special.

I'd like to introduce the Quixote Scarf. Don Quixote was famous for "tilting at windmills" and this scarf features tilted cables.

It's a garter stitch scarf -- but the cables are tilted to run diagonally across the scarf. The diagonal rectangle is formed by increasing on one side and decreasing on the other.

Knit in squishy warm garter stitch in a worsted weight yarn, this piece features cables that use Lily Chin’s reversible cables technique, so when you wrap the scarf ends around you, they look exactly the same on both sides. A cozy fringe completes the look. It is easy yet a bit of a challenge for the fearless knitter.

I'm pleased to say that there are already 16 projects in progress, and it's been queued over 50 times. One of my favorite podcasts, Barb and Tracie of The 2 Knit Lit Chicks, were kind enough to mention the pattern on their recent podcast episode, and that was much appreciated. Check them out - they are a lot of fun.

Talk to you soon.
