    Hi! I like your pattern very much. I’m a beginer though and i wonder if you could send me the pattern without the cable part. I would like to make one for my mom.

    Thank you!

    I enjoyed making the Bobble Cable Ascot. My friend enjoyed getting it as a gift.She
    never knitted or crocheted and was amazed to see how easy it was to make the ascot.

  11. Rose Arnst says:

    I have made around 29 of these scarfs and love the pattern. I change the pattern of the cable every now and then just to make them look different.

    Carrie, did you ever get one of these? I would be happy to sell you one and mail it to you. email me at

  12. Rose Arnst says:

    made many of these and changed cable on some.
    carrie, if still interested in purchasing, email me

    I really like the Anthropologie-Inspired Bobble Cable Ascot , butI do not what M1 means. I have been knitting for a little while and getting fairly good but I have never heard of that stitch or how to do it, can you give me any instructions or help ?

  14. Kayla K says:

    “M 1″ means “make one.” It is an increase stitch.

  15. Peggie says:

    I would love to make this and have been knitting for years, but I can’t understand what M1 means. I know you said “Make 1″, but it’s as clear as mud to me. I don’t even care if it has a cable stitch, even though I like it, I just want to understand the pattern. Thanks for you help with this, I’m about to start cancer treatments and thought this might help pass the time away while doing them.

  16. Esther says:

    I have been knitting for nearly 38 yrs, and have never heard of M1 for an abbreviation for increasing. I have only seen it as “inc”.

  17. Esther says:

    I have been knitting a good many years and have never heard of an “inc” being abbreviated make 1.

  18. Isabella says:

    I am trying to knit this bubble scarf having trouble after knitting the 15 rows .can you explain the next step row 32 how to get back to continue knitting .There is one stitch on the dpn .I am waiting for your reply. Isabella

  19. crochetmary says:

    This is a great resource….to see a video on how to accomplish a ‘Make 1′, scroll down the list to the section on ‘M1′. Also, you can see a few other videos so that you will see the difference between ‘increases (left or right slanting) and ‘make 1′ (left or right slanting).
    Hope that this helps….

  20. Kayla K says:

    For row 32, Knit one stitch with the regular needles, and slip the next stitch to a double pointed needle held to the back of your work. Do this all of the way across. Do not knit the stitches on the DPN, just continue to work on the stitches on your regular needles.
    I hope this helps?

  21. Isabella says:

    Kayla k,
    I knit 15 rows on the regular needles with this 1 stitch on the dpn at the back now I still have the one stitch on the dpn and do not know what to do next..Please help

  22. Kayla K says:

    You knit one, slip one to the DPN all of the way across. You should have an equal number of stitches on the working needles and DPN. After you have finished knitting the 15 rows, attach yarn to the DPN and work those stitches as described later on in the pattern.

  23. Isabella says:

    Hello Kayla K ,
    Thanks for the information.I now understand the explanation.Isabella

  24. Lourdes Perales says:

    I have tried to follow the pattern but I do not have 11 stiches in every side for row 21. What am I doing wrong?

  25. Christine Rose says:

    Hi, I’m interested in making the Anthropologie-Inspired bobble Cable Ascot. Could you please tell me what M1 – Make 1 means. I’m not familiar with that term. After casting on 10, Row 1 – K2, P6, K2. Row 2 – K1, M1, K to end. Thank you.

  26. Kayla K says:

    Make one means to increase one stitch.

  27. Linh says:

    Dear Kayla!
    I like this bobble scarf a lot. Try to make one, But I am get lost at row 32. I slip in to DPN, then make 15 row of ribs. i am only have 18 stitches left . How can I get back to 28 stitches. i do not know how to connect from there to start the main scarf.Please explain to me more .
    thanks a lot for your instruction!

  28. Carol W says:

    So sorry, what is M 1? I love the scarf and want to make it, but am stumped by this, I have been knitting for over 50 years and never have seen this direction.

  29. Carol Wendel says:

    The directions state M l =make l. I am not familiar with that direction,

  30. Carol Wendel says:

    Is it possible for someone to explain how to do the M l direction which is explained as Make l

  31. Brenda says:

    My friends and i at our knitting group have knitted this but without the cable. I dont know where i got the original pattern from (My mum most likely) when she was alive but i found it easy to do but will now try with the cable in for a new look.
    With regards to Carols question M1 means make one by picking up the loop between the 2 stitches and knitting it. Hope it helps

  32. Polly says:

    One worsted weight skein or two or ????

  33. Denise Clennell says:

    Alot of people are having trouble with M1. Pick up the bar between 2 sts put it on left hand needle and knit in to back of st.

  34. Diane Maiorano says:

    Nice pattern,but will not be able to knit this unless I have a copy, any chance of getting a print friendly version?

  35. Karin says:

    Hi Kayla — I just wanted to let you know I love this scarf. It makes great gift knitting and I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to figure it all out and make it available for free — very generous of you. I have just started a blog and posted the link to your wonderful pattern there. Please feel free to drop by.

  36. Karin says:

    Hi again — I just relealized, I have the post that mentions your blog/link scheduled for Monday, so if you stop by and don’t see it, that’s why. I’m new to all this. Have a great day.

  37. Jeanne says:

    Love the look of the ascot, but don’t understand the pattern. I don’t understand what they mean when they say turn and knit and pearl in the same stitch.


  38. Mimi25boyz says:

    A printer-friendly version would be nice! Do you have a PDF?

  39. kathy says:
