Exactly the same on both sides.
If you're curious.......Here's the pattern as sent to me. I added the ( ) to make easier for me as I started working it.

The pattern calls for 74 stitches, but if you are using smaller yarn and
needles, you will want to cast on more. Any multiple of 18 + 2 additional
stitches will work. ( 7 row repeat )

Rows 1-6: Purl 1, then Knit 3, Purl 3 across. Knit the last stitch.

Row 7: *Put the first 6 stitches on a cable needle and hold it in front of
your work.
Purl 1, Knit 3, Purl 1 then put the first stitch ( the last st put on cable needle ) from the cable needle on to your left needle and Purl it.
From the cable needle, Purl 1, Knit 3, Purl 1. Then Purl 2, Knit 3, Purl
2*. Repeat from * to *. ( last repeat ends P 2, K 3, P 3, K 1.)

Beautiful job!! :cheering:

If you don't mind me asking, which yarn did you use? Specifically, worsted or lighter?

Beautiful! I have never knitted cables yet... are they easy? I've seen them knitted before and they look like fun, yet challenging... well, to me at least.

That is beautiful!! Thanks for posting the pattern! I'll have to play around with that, I love cables :)

oooh thanks for the pattern - I've added it to my wish list and thinking that may be my first effort at cables as I actually understood the pattern!
Would also be interested to know what wool you used!

Thank you everyone, for the nice compliments.

To knitwit628: Cables are not difficult. Start with a basic cable and keep trying new ones.

To nuknitter: I used some 3ply sport yarn from France that I bought probably 30 years ago, on a size 6 needle. I knit on the loose side.
The friend who sent me the pattern used a yummy 4 ply alpaca on a size 7 and she wished she had used an 8 , as she knits rather tight.

To lestrella: That pattern looks like more work than it is. Those 6 rows of K3, P3 make it go fast.

That looks a lot like the Here and There cables (I think) from Scarf Style. If you like reversible scarves, there's a really cool free one called Cinnabar with mock ribbed cables (corrected pdf. at ahknits.com or something). Yours looks very thick and cushy!
