The ribs and cables in this hat and scarf remind me of the dirt roads here in Northern Vermont. In winter, they’re covered with ice and snow. In spring they’re muddy and rutted.

In summer and fall, they’re clean and smooth and often in better shape than many of our paved roads. But at any time of year, dirt roads are part of life in Vermont. Even some of our main highways are unpaved, and the shortest distance from here to anywhere usually includes at least a few miles over a stretch of dirt.

These patterns are easy to knit but if you’re a new cable knitter, you may feel like you’re skidding on ice or sinking in the mud. But don’t be afraid! Before you know it, you’ll be happily driving along toward your destination without a worry.

Approx 6” (15 cm) wide by 64” (162 cm) long, without fringe

16” (41cm) circumference
9” (23cm) long, excluding pompom
