Silvers reversible cable scarf
I'm getting ready to knit Silver's reversible cable scarf.
I am totally geeked doing the reversible cable but a lil apprehensive if I can understand C8F.

Is anyone familiar with this stitch? I can't remember if I ever did any cable work so this could all be new. But I am determined.


Thanks
Roxy

I just finished the hat
1 The C8F means when you get to that point, you put 4 stitches to your cable needle, lay it forward, knit the next 4, then knit the 4 on the cable needle and go onto your pattern from there. Laying them forward then knitting them after is what makes the twist effect.
Does that help? What is confusing you?
Once you get going, you jones for the next cable to come up!

Thanks Binkykat!
Yes that really helped a lot! I guess the only part that is confusing is how is it different from regular (not reversible) cable.

Actually it is different in this pattern. This is from the pattern: C8F: Slip 4 sts to a cable needle and hold to front, K2, P2, then K2, P2 from the cable needle. The purls are what make it reversible and are the key to the pattern.

It's doing the cables in ribbing instead of stockinette that makes them reversible, otherwise it's just the same.

another cable question.....
ok, am I reading this pattern right?
it says to do 4 rows K2, P2 b4 I do the cable row?

seems a little far apart. Is that right?

That's fine. Most cable patterns have the same number of rows as there are sts in the cable. I like them longer so do 2 more rows between cables.

thanks for the prompt reply! I will get it once I see the pattern.

So you're saying 4 rows is a standard pace with a 4 stitch cable, but if you want a longer cable effect, add a row or 2 to the off cable stitched rows?
