Pattern for beginning cablers
 
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

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.
