This does actually happen where he lives now and then, so the scarf doesn't have to stay in the closet all the time. So sad to think of that poor scarf, sitting cramped in the closet among the heavy coats that rarely get worn either.
But don't cry! The scarf pictured here is knitted more sensibly out of worsted weight wool. This is actually some of my handspun, and it was lots of fun to knit with it!

IT'S NOT TV, IT'S CABLE SCARF
© 2013 Reyna Thera Lorele
The pattern is a multiple of 5 sts plus 2.
For chunky yarn, 200 yds or so should be enough, with size 10.5 needles.
For worsted weight, I used about 270 yds and size 7 needles.
For chunky yarn, CO 27 sts.
For worsted weight, CO 32 sts.
Row 1 (RS): p2, *sl 1 as if to knit, k2, psso, p2*, rep from * to * across.
Row 2: k2, *p1, yo, p1, k2*, rep from * to * across.
Row 3: p2, *k3, p2*, rep from * to * across.
Row 4: k2, *p3, k2*, rep from * to * across.
Repeat these 4 rows until the scarf is the length you want, or you run out of yarn, or both.
CO = cast on
k = knit
p = purl
psso = pass slipped stitch over
sl = slip
st, sts = stitch, stitches
yo = yarn over
