Yeah, cables are that you've got to be joking me :rollseyes: group of stitches in a knitters repertoire. When you see them you believe they are going to be extremely difficult to do, but actually when you work them most are pretty simple. It is just a matter of patience working large patterns with them. :grin: You look to be making a nice headway with the scarf, good luck.

Great job! I thought the same thing about cables. I thought they'd be so hard and they're anything but.

My first cabling was a scarf too. The cables were easy enough, I just had to keep frogging because I lost track of where I was in the pattern
