Anyone want to make a cabled scarf?
Ok this is my first cable attempt. And I didn't pick the esy cable scarf pattern. Maybe I am crazy, but I just like the way this one looks.

I am making this for my Dad using a chunkier yarn. I upped the needle size to 10 1/2.

Here's the pattern: (FREE)

Not sure whether to laugh or cry at this point! I think I have finally figured out how to cable. Took the stupid thing off the needles and ripped it all out I think three times. The last time I got smart and decided to practice a plain cable with worsted weight before I dive back in. This has been my first attempt at cabling but I think I will get the hang of it. I am rather worried that I should revert to an easier pattern to finish by christmas but I like this pattern so much!

That one's trickier than a regular cable, but if you're really careful about following the directions about whether the cable needle goes in front or back, you should be ok. Check each cable after you make it to make sure it's headed in the right direction so you don't get to far ahead of any errors.

A monthly "cable" knit along is in the works; I was thinking March, for some reason. Not that you should wait until then! You're ambitious--my first cabling was a LOT simpler!!!!!!!!!

I ripped that thing out so many times! I have now decided to make the Irish walking scarf from helloyarn.com. That has been coming along much nicer. I have about 10 inches done.

I am determined I will make the besotted scarf next, after I have the experience of this one.

Hello all :D I just started the Irish Walking Scarf this weekend! I have had the pattern for a while, but have never gotten around to starting. I bought some beautiful hand spun, hand died yarn while on vacation (in a dark blue color), and I am using that. I guess that makes this scarf my vacation souvenir!

BTW, I'm using a double pointed, wood needle as my "cable needle." I bought some cable needles, and had a horrible time trying to use them. For some reason the wood DPN works much better,
