Thanks Silver -

I bought some beautiful yarn yesterday to make the scarf and hat. It is a new yarn that my LYS is carrying - Linie Candia. It is a little heavier than the SWS but it is so soft and the colors are great - it is also self striping. I usually make scarves or something for some of my friends at work for holiday gifts - so I think that I will use your pattern this year. THANKS SO MUCH!

I'm making a bunch of Palindromes for christmas gifts. My mom is getting a pinkish one, my dad a manly grey one, and my brother a black one. I love how easy it is and it's amazing how cables appear on both sides. Magic!!

Silver,

I am making this scarf and it is my first cable. I am just having some confusion with this part (and it is me more than likely)

"Row 5: (RS) *K2, P2, C8F* Repeat to last 4 sts, K2, P2

***KEY*** VERY IMPORTANT for reversible cables!
C8F: Slip 4 sts to a cable needle and hold to front, K2, P2, then K2, P2 from the cable needle."

I am on the last repeat of row 5, at the end it says to repeat to the last 4 stitches then K2, P2 and I am to C8F according to your directions. I have followed your directions, I currently have 4 stitches on the cable needle and there are 4 for the K2P2 part of the cable and that is it. There are no stitches left for a edge? Am I doing this right? I just checked and I did cast on 40 stitches to be sure.

Repeat what's in the *s until there are 4 stitches left (there will be 3 repeats, and 4 stitches left). When you get to those last four stitches, you should knit 2, purl 2, and that's all.

HTH!

Thank you thank you thank you! I was wondering what I was going to do with those single skeins of Mmmmmmalabrigo and now I know! I love the scarf! It is beautiful!

p.s. a friend of mine demonstrated the "Spit n Rub" method for me last night....she's a long-time knitter and still manages to gross herself out every time. LOL

I did the spit and rub one time, and DH looked at me like..."WTH are you SPITTING on your knitting for?"

He was like...totally amazed when he saw what happened.

Big Thanks!!!!
Hi Silver, I just started working on your Palindrome scarf, and I really love it. This is just what I was looking for because I wanted to make my dad a scarf and hat set for Christmas, this is the most perfect pattern I have come across for him. I am definately making the hat also.
I am using the new Bernat Cashmere yarn and it is so soft and lovely. I love the colourways in the SWS but knowing my dad, he would find it too itchy with so much wool content.
Once again, thank you so much for the free pattern, and I am sure most of us will post pics of our finished objects

Silver.........RE the felting method of yarn, I watched 2 videos on KH. Is there a preference between the 2?:

#1: Felted Join - Single Color

#2: Felted Join - Two Colors

I just do the single color felted join. No science involved.
