WIP - Good Ole Cable Scarf - 1st Cable Project
 
I found the pattern at Yarn-a-go-go (http://www.yarnagogo.com/good_ole_cabled_scarf) and it's really turning out a lot better than I had hoped. This is my first full project with cables (besides a couple of samples I did messing around) and I love it so far. Some people like using cable needles, some don't, but I love them. Far less confusing.

This is a gift for my boyfriend's sister and is made out of Plymouth Yarn's Suri Alpaca/Fine Merino Blend. It is sooooo soft. And while the yarn calls for size 7 needles, I didn't have size 7 and used 8 instead and it looks fantastic. It is just the right width.

I am currently a little over half way finished and will post more pictures when that finally happens!

Here's just a little sneak peek! :)

That's exactly what made me fall in love with it -- I love moss stitch, but it's so blah by itself and the cables with it looked great. Enjoy! It's very easy!

Beautiful! The moss stitch and cables really do compliment each other well, and you're doing a fabulous job!
