I came up with Meltwater when I picked up a skein of Quarry to try, playing around with small cables in big yarn. The yarn made such great ribbing and wonderful cables that I decided to use both and make a generous, squooshable scarf with an integrated i-cord border along each side. This pattern uses knit, purl, slipped stitches, and 2-stitch cables. Instructions for working the cables without a cable needle are included. The stitch patterns are charted only.

About the Yarn
Brooklyn Tweed Quarry is a woolen-spun chunky weight yarn that blocks into a spongy, woolly, cohesive fabric. It looks a bit like an unspun, Lopi-style yarn, though it’s actually a loosely-spun 3-ply. This structure gives Quarry surprisingly good stitch definition, making cables and textures pop beautifully. The woolen-style spinning creates a lofty yarn with good memory and great yardage for the weight. If you are using a different yarn for this project, look for a yarn with good stitch definition and memory that won’t stretch out or become too heavy in this size of project.
