Nico is worked flat in one piece. After completing the seed stitch edge, increases are worked to accommodate the cables and the all-over cable pattern is worked the length of the scarf. The decreases are then worked, and the scarf is finished with a matching seed stitch edge.
The cable pattern is charted.
