I decided to put aside my current (frustrating) project for a bit and knit myself something relatively quick and easy. I decided to make this pattern:

Celtic Cable Neck Warmer (http://thestormmoon.blogspot.com/2008/03/free-pattern-celtic-cable-neckwarmer.html)

It occurred to me that this might be a really good pattern for a knitter who wants to learn cables. The reasons why:

There are four types of cables in the pattern, all very straightforward.

Gauge isn't super important, so you can concentrate on learning the cables and not have to worry about it.
It's not huge, so you won't feel like it will take you forever to do (it only takes about 130 yards of worsted weight yarn).
The chart is really well designed.


So if you're new to cables or want to learn them, I'd take a look at this pattern. :)

Very pretty! And for more experienced at cables knitters, it could be made longer for a scarf.

Yeah, it looks like several people on Ravelry have done that.
