Bold, yet versatile, this cabled scarf from Vogue Knitting – Holiday 2008, pictured here knit in elann.com Den-M-Nit Pure Indigo Cotton, is a modern classic. Elegant, yet simple cable patterns are emphasized and enhanced by the way the Den-m-Knit fades when washed.
Den-M-Nit washes and fades like your favorite pair of blue jeans ans will shrink by 10-15% in length when dried in a clothes dryer. If your plan is to machine wash and dry your garment like a pair of jeans, just make a few adjustments to the length dimensions of your knitting – simply add 10-15% more rows for all length dimensions, and then shrink to fit.
