Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

Recently a dear friend and colleague of mine, Trent, had a family member pass away. Whenever I hear of sad news that effects friends or family members the first thing I always think of is what I can do for them or make for them. Making things for someone during a sad or stressful time always makes me feel better and more importantly my hope is that it will make the other person feel better. Since Trent is in New York I can’t physically be there to help so making something was definitely in order. I think a lot of knitters feel this same way.

Out of my concern and sadness for my friend this beautiful, lush, cabled scarf emerged. It will be perfect for him. In fact, I just mailed it off to him this afternoon. This scarf is the next free pattern for Spud says! I want to spread the love I sent to my friend to all of you as well. 

I am naming this scarf, Rambling. If you look closely you will see that there are three columns of rambling cables. I’ll tell you how to make your own rambling cables in the pattern, it is really fun. I loved the name especially when I looked up the definition in the dictionary.


1. aimlessly wandering.
2. taking an irregular course; straggling: a rambling brook.
3. spread out irregularly in various directions.


Anyway, it’s a perfect name to fit the scarf. I used two skeins of Spud & Chloë Sweater in Rootbeer, a gorgeous dark brown. I worked on US size 9 needles at 4 stitches per inch. Rambling is an excellent scarf for a man or woman. Get your yarn and needles ready to go! You are going to love this pattern. It is incredibly simple and it will give you a fantastic and impressive looking result.

Well, that’s it for today. I’ll get the free pattern up within the next day or two.

I’ll be rambling on….
