Anthropologie-Inspired Bobble Cable Ascot

by Kayla K on January 7, 2010

I’ve recently discovered Anthropologie through Mommy Outfit posts on Samster Mommy.  I adore this company from afar as a store does not exist within a 200 mile radius of either of my homes.  And, even if they were close by I couldn’t bring myself to spend that kind of money on clothes that look like great thrift store finds.  Great thrift store finds.

Anyway, I fell in love with a scarf on Anthropologie that I thought I could duplicate.  And I did, using yarn from an old sweater.  I wrote this pattern (and tested it!) so you can enjoy it too.  I’ll wear one scarf and stash the tester for Compact-friendly gifting.
