Half way there

I made it to the halfway point today:




At 13.5 repeats, it measures just shy of 30". I was aiming for 60", so the finished product will be quite close to what I had planned for it.

So, to fringe or not to fringe, that is the question... opinions please.

Whoa, Liesel. We are doing a twin project! I am just shy of the 30" mark and the halfway point. I estimate my finished scarf will also be approx. 60" AND as I think I've commented before, my pattern is very similar to yours. I am using a pale pink alpaca yarn and the pattern is an aran style with two open cables on either side and honeycomb in the middle.

Yours looks lovely!

What a great cable pattern!

I vote no fringe ... let the cables speak for themselves. :-)

Gorgeous! I second Dave's comment: no fringe. The cables are lovely on their own.

No fringe! The cables are awesome in their cabley-ness.

I had the same issue. I don't like fringe but I asked my pal and she does. To me, the scarf I knit was fine without fringe. It's a ribbed pattern. Just in case, I cut the fringe and included it in the package with the scarf. If my pal thinks it needs fringe she can add it. I think your cabled scarf looks great without fringe.

love it! It doesn't need a fringe, IMO, those lovely cables are sufficient!
