Cable Scarf

MWK - Houston's picture

I was stuck at home this weekend and finished my first cable scarf. The original pattern called for three cables but I expanded it to 5. I also added some ribbing to the top and bottom. The colors didn't come out great in the picture but they are gray and wine.

It was fun to knit - now I think everyone will be getting a scarf for Christmas.

Two purl / two knit / two

Two purl / two knit / two purl between the cables - Its a free download pattern from hellhelloyarn.com called Irish Hiking Scarf (with three cables not 5). I used wool of the Andes from knitpicks.

No extra stitches added it

No extra stitches added it is the basic 6 stitch cable where you pull three in front on the fourth row and then pull over the other stitches.

Looks great. Did you add extra stitches to compensate for the pulling in of the cables?
