this link will take you to the image of this terrible strap
I couldn't load the pic right from my computer so my daughter told me to us imageshack.us.
I believe there was a slight error with the pattern after the cables were done as my pic looks a bit different. I think in the pic on Ravelry she finished at 9 rows instead of 12 for the cable sequence. If this is so then maybe she did something a bit different for the straps instead of how it is written. I my cables stitches turned out fine for this a a scarf.
