Yeah. It is RIDICULOUSLY easy and quick to knit, and just so beautiful too. Mum will love it and think I spent FOREVER on it. Bwahahaha. Success! I can't wait to use cables from now on! I love learning new techniques. It's so exciting!

You are kicking my butt on the scarf! I didn't even pick up knitting last night! Are you using size 8 needles? It didn't even occur to me that I could finish it before Xmas!! This is my first real cable project, and I love it! It looks soooo impressive I played around with making a test cable, but never actually incorporated it into a project

Yeah, size 8. And it's my first cabled project as well. *shrugs* I dunno. I mean, I did spend a few hours of it already. I'm at a foot now, but I need to get a move on it to get it done before xmas. Like 2 feet a day. Gah. Must.... knit....

You can do it Holly! Do not fear the cables! Also, I'm using this yarn I got in a bag from my local thrift store. It's really hard and tight and super nice to knit with. It's not soft really, but it makes knitting really easy. (no idea what it is though)

Can someone explain this pattern to me?

Because it's missing the Row 4 instructions entirely, and when it says to repeat everything between the asteriks, does it mean the cabling as well? Because that sounds like it would turn out really wonky.

And what does Slip mean? Because I looked up under abrreviations on this site, and there are three different entries that have three different instructions.

The Besotted one. It looked really pretty. I didn't see any links to an Irish Hiking Scarf.

Just slip the stitich onto your other needle. Don't knit it or anything.

Row 2. and all WS rows: Slip 1, P1, *K2, P8, K2, P2* Repeat what's between the *s two more times

Got it? It took me a minute too. All WS rows are knit like row 2.

I'm going to do the Irish Hiking Scarf instead of the Bessotted. A lot easier to undersntad (not to mention more complete) instuctions. :XX:

One question though: when do you knit off the cabled stitches? I can see where it tells to put them on a cable needle, but not where they get knitt off in the instuctions.

Wow, knitting instuctions are all so confusing. I miss my crocheting hooks. :(

You hold the 3 in front on the cable needle, knit 3 from your regular needle, then knit the 3 from the cable needle.

I didn't finish it for Christmas for my mum, but I did show it to her and she really likes it. Winter is almost over in Florida, but she'll be able to wear it next year.

Also, it has A LOT of mistakes, but I didn't notice them until I was taking the pictures. Crazy! Oh well. It makes it more unique and Katrina Made. :rofling:
