I went to Old Navy tonight and I fell in love with a scarf. I can't bring myself to buy a knitted scarf that I could make so I decided to knit it myself. I went home and got on the website and this is the description of the item:

Extra-chunky yarn gives this scarf a handmade look, but the intricate cabled patterns go way beyond "knit one, purl two." Each corner has the added bonus of a fluffy pom-pom.

It seems to me like they are saying 'the chunky yarn makes it LOOK hand knit- but it's too complicated for a knitter to make"... umm.. not this knitter!



How can I figure out this cable pattern? Does anyone know what it is?

kind of like this

i think it looks more like the Parasol stitch

although what it looks like in my book is different from what it looks like online...although the same steps are taken...

How can I figure out this cable pattern? Does anyone know what it is?

I wouldn't call the center design a cable. A variation of a 'horseshoe' lace maybe. But not a cable. The side designs look like a plain 2stfront cable done maybe 12 rows apart. To figure it out, either chart it out like explained here  or go to the library and look for stitch treasuries - Barbara Walker, Vogue, Harmony, Mary Thomas, - are a few, and I know there's others. Go through the treasuries until you find this pattern, or something really close and make the changes.  The link is for charting cables, so it may not be exact, but the ideas might help, or see if there's anything at http://techknitting.blogspot.com about reverse-engineering a stitch pattern

I think you're right that it's not too hard to knit - figuring out the pattern is probably going to be the hardest part!  Cheesy

I wonder if Old Navy gave that description to discourage anyone from trying to figure out the pattern!  ha ha Little do they know that they have thrown down the gauntlet for every knitter to try to figure out how to make a similar scarf!!! More than likely, the reverse is true: they probably adapted their knitting machines to a pattern that a real life knitter made!  Sad  I noticed this in their clothing lines and fabric...

I looked at the patterns you guys have suggested and while it might not be exactly the same, it is close enough for even an intermediate knitter like me to try! Cool--and I like the pompoms at the end a lot!  I know I can make those!  Cheesy

Good luck with your scarf--I know you can do it--remember to post your final project!

From the (very, extremely) little I know of knitting machines, this probably can't be knit on a machine and it's being done by hand someplace anyway. Anybody who's more familiar with knitting machines please correct me, but I didn't think knitting machines could do much more than garter, stockinette and ribbing. Maybe that's just the personal-use machines and the commercial-use machines can handle fancier stitches, I don't know.

oh--did I read her description incorrectly?  I was going by the description that it looks "handmade"--I just made the assumption that not handmade meant machine made...whatever...t hen it should be even easier to make by hand then?  Cheesy

My cranky old knitting machine does cables--I have not quite mastered them and it seems like a lot of work to remove stitches and put them back on! Someday when I have more time, maybe I will drag it in from the garage...Believe me, I do not profess to be any kind of knitter other than a laid back casual one!

I'm pretty sure commercial knitting machines can handle more complex stitches.  Think of the number of cabled, lace, or multicolored knit items you see for sale at the local mall (and think of how perfect and even the stitching is on all of them, and how thin the yarn often is).  There's just no way those can all be handknit, even if the manufacturers are employing entire developing nations for seven-day workweeks working 15 hours a day.

I stand corrected  - thank you. That does make sense.

The more I look at it, it's not that complicated a pattern - a few border stitches that make the cable, a few stitches that stay in garter (or seed stitch, I can't quite tell from the picture) one or 2 stitches that stay in stockinette, then 15-ish for the actual lace (knit, YO, knit dec, garter, knit dec, YO, knit - or some variation thereof, I'm not trying figure out actual stitch counts) and again with the stockinette/garter/cable border stitches. It looks like a increase-5(?)-in-one-type increase to make that round-ish texture stitch at the top of the lace pattern.

It would be easier (for me anyway  Grin) to figure the stitch counts etc if I had the knitting in hand to see which stitches are in the same row - the way the increases/decreases happen, the rows curve so it's harder to tell.

I think the pattern is rather easy, but my English vocabulary may be a little poor to explain... I'll try anyway, if it won't be clear I'll try to sketch it tomorrow.

In my opinion the middle part should go like this:
*row 1. knit 5, make 6 mesh in one, knit 5
row 2. purl
row 3. knit 2, knit 2 mesh together, knit 1, purl 6, knit 1, 2 mesh together, knit 2.
row 4. purl
row 5. knit 1, knit 2 mesh together, knit 1, purl 6, knit 1, 2 mesh together, knit 1.
row 6. purl
row 7. knit 2 mesh together, knit 1, purl 6, knit 1, 2 mesh together.*

Repeat from * to *

I completely don't know how to explain how to knit 2 mesh together so they turn to the right or left, but I'm sure you know how to do it Wink

If it's a problem how to knit 6 mesh in one I can do a tutorial with photos, if it's not a problem that I'm continental knitter Wink

Looking at the zoom on the Old Navy website, it appears that the RS end shown is in fact the bind-off edge, thus making that bobble-y thing a k5tog, from what I am able to see.  I am in fact going to run out to the Old Navy and see for myself what the stitch count is.  When I return, I shall let all you lovely craftsters know what my two cents in fact, are.

So one trip to the mall and $50 at Old Navy (most on my little sister's thanksgiving/early christmas/I miss you while I'm away present) later, I have returned VICTORIOUS! (pattern follows image- apologies for the quality- I used my tiny DPNs as they're the only free needles I have right now)



CO 23 stitches.

**** Treat all yo's as stitches throughout****

Row 1:  K4, P2, K1, YO, K9, YO, K1, P2, K4

Row 2:  P9 treating YO as a stitch, K7, P9

Row 3: K4, P2, K3, YO, K9, YO, K2, P2, K4

Row 4: P10, K7, P10

Row 5: K4, P2, K3, YO, K9, YO, K3, P2, K4

Row 6: Purl across

Row 7: K4, P2, K5, K7tog, K5, P2, K4

Row 8: purl across

Row 9: C4F, P2, K1, YO, K9, YO, K1, P2, C4F



*** C4F:  Slip 2 stitches from Left needle to a cable needle or dpn.  Knit 2 from left needle, K2 from cable needle.


Note:  I found that wrapping the yarn around the right needle 3 times on the center stitch (so the 15th stitch), slipping those 7 stitches on row 7 to a cable needle or dpn, dropping the extra wraps and pulling all those stitches with the needle to stretch the loops a little looser, then doing your K7tog from the cable needle as opposed to from the left needle makes it a LOT easier to K7tog.  Or enlist the help of a crochet hook for those 7 stitches, or a friend whose shoulder you can cry on later, because it's frustrating if you have a snug tension, like me.


You may also want to add 2 stitches on each edge to do a slipped stitch edge for neatness sake.

Weaselfeet, that looks great!!  I might suggest that there's a little more decreasing and increasing going on that what you've got there, to make the curvey-iney bits, but your version is lovely!  It's a variation of what my Mon Tricot (man I love this thing) calls "Cockle Shells" but I don't know if it shows up like that in other stitch dictionaries.  The cockle shells pattern only has eyelet for a background, and the shells are much bigger, but judicious use of stockinette and some left and right slanting decreases in conjunction with the eyelet I think would be spot on.

I think you're right.  I'm going to stick to the acrylic I started with, for now.  I'd have to use size 15 needles for the Fever, at the very least.

I didn't see any decreasing or increasing in the scarf when I looked, other than the k7tog in the center.  I did 3 more pattern repeats last night, and as the scarf grows, the curves are more pronounced.  I also didn't pull my k7tog as tight as they did in the store version, which may contribute to it, but with the 3 eyelets and the k7tog, it works even.  If you try another inc/dec variation that works better, though, please share.

I hope I didn't sound critical, it just didn't seem to be quite right and I couldn't put my finger on it.  I think, actually, that you're exactly right about the increases, and maybe it's just not having enough repeats or a chunky enough yarn.

Anybody who's more familiar with knitting machines please correct me, but I didn't think knitting machines could do much more than garter, stockinette and ribbing. Maybe that's just the personal-use machines and the commercial-use machines can handle fancier stitches, I don't know.

Home-use knitting machines vary greatly in their capabilities, but they can do a lot more than stockinette. There's actually only one type of home machine that *can* do garter stitch (Brother machines with a garter carriage), and the rest can't. But your average home knitting machine - by which I don't mean the Bond "sweater machine," which is the Yugo of knitting machines - can do ribbing, lace, intarsia, tucking, and a ton of other patterns.

Commercial knitting machines have fewer limitations than home-use machines. Shima Seiki, for example, makes some industrial machines with amazing capabilities, including seamless sweaters. They have a really cool gallery where you can see some of the types of garments the machine can do, actually.

But, this is really off-topic for the thread.  Wink Excellent job deconstructing the Old Navy scarf!  Grin

Oh, no, not at all.  Any help is definitely appreciated in pilfering patterns from corporate clothing chains.  I even stopped to look at the really pretty cable-yoked sweaters and thought "I can knit that, TOO!"   I only really looked at the very first few rows of the scarf to get the idea of the pattern, when I could actually count the stitches to know what seemed to be going on.  I felt a bit awkward standing in the middle of Old Navy with graph paper and pen, counting stitches and closely studying the stitch pattern. Before I saw the scarf in person, I did think there were decreases, as well, but I couldn't figure out where to increase to make it work even for a second repeat.   The scarf led me to believe otherwise.

Here's the scarf after 5 pattern repeats.  I also modified the cable placement to every 10th row instead of every 8th.

Awww, thanks.  Gee golly whiz you made me smile!  Perfect for a cold, rainy day in Syracuse, when the crush is being Mr Grumpy Gills.  I just may knit some more tonight, I feel so darn good.  Curl up with my Studio 60 DVDs and work on that there scarf.

to me it reminds me or aran, with cables and using decrease and increase for the angled areas liek the center garter stiches in the center each, maybe using a type of open lace for the arches? maybe with just enough paitience and organiation you can do it~. But Thanks Weasle it looks really easy now.
