This scarf (http://www.helloyarn.com/irishhikingcarf.htm) is a popular first cable project.

I'm working on the Good Ole Cabled scarf - http://www.yarnagogo.com/good_ole_cabled_scarf/

It's my first cable project. They really are so simple. Just trust the pattern! :)

I'm actually working on the one that Ingrid suggested and it is a very easy pattern to follow.

That Irish Hiking Scarf is so pretty -- it's on my "to do" list.

I think I might try the irish hiking scarf for my knitting olympics project--Hey Ingrid--think that's doable? I've never cabled before...

Cabling is such a breeze, you'll slap yourself for not trying it sooner!!

that was my first cabling project - just 2 small cables to get the hang of it

it's a gorgeous hat that looks like crap on me - i think you need curly hair to pull it off, not my sad marcia brady straight hair

but the hat is fabu

it is a great hat--my best friend has curly hair and I love it but she hates it...I have marcy brady hair too--I think it's a "grass is greener" kind of thing.

This lovely hat (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/PATTcoronet.html) is also a really easy first time cable project. The cable is knit seperately, grafted in the back and then stitches picked up to make the hat portion. You could also do this same band smaller in a cotton thread to make a headband (had a friend that did that).
