The Australian made New Zealand yarn Irish Hiking Scarf
Yay!!! Finally a photo which captures the colour of the yarn. Isn't it just so, well, GRAPE???
Don't tell anyone but this is one of those patterns that looks way more complex than it is to actually do. You only have to use the cable needle three times every eight rows. It's knitting up very quickly.
As can be seen, the posmerino is taking the cables very well. It is extremely warm - I hope my knittee lives in an area with cold winters!
It's certainly an international scarf - the pattern is Irish, the yarn is from New Zealand, it's being made in Australia and will end up in the United States.
