24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / a superfast, super easy cable scarf, without cable needles[update- new tutorial] on: December 24, 2007 10:11:20 AM
in the 'stitch and bitch nation' book, there is a scarf that i believe is called a cheat cable scarf, or something like that. well, i loved the idea of it, but already bought lion brand wool ease thick and quick for my christmas gift scarfs. what did i do? well i fixed up the pattern of course and loved the results of my even more cheatful cheat cable scarf. so i made one for a friend and this one i just finished for my grand mother, who is going to get it tonight. i thought she deserved one, she did teach me to knit after all..
merry christmas grandma!!


modeled by me. for those who want to know, the scarf itself is about 5 1/2 ft long.


and modeled by my floor.


and a better view of both sides. the back (left) is basically ribbed, but mines a bit wonkey for some reason. and the front is cabled. pretty amazing.

EDIT!!
my grandmother loved it! and now i can continue to create one for myself, but first...

heres the tutorial. i am sorry if it is a bit confusing, but if you are confused, just let me know. ill answer any questions.
also note that this is the first tutorial i've ever made, so be kind.

materials-
size 13 US needles
yarn- lion brand wool ease (you will need 2)

gauge- 9st/4in

CO 13 st

row 1- K1, P2. repeat until one is left on the row, end K1

row 2- p1. heres where it gets confusing. K on the SECOND stitch on the left needle. don't move anything yet. then K on the FIRST stitch on the left needle. pull off those two stitches from the left needle. you should now have 3 st on your right needle. this is what makes your cable. if it helps, you are just making a cable stitch, but not taking any stitches off on a cable needle. after doing those first three stitches, repeat P, K second, K first, until one is left on the row, end P1

continue the row 1[back] and row 2[front] sequence until desired length, and voila! a beautiful new scarf.  Cheesy

27  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / putting in new colors?? on: November 29, 2007 07:28:32 PM
i'm working on a checkered print hat for my boyfriend, but i have never worked with two colors before, and don't know how to add the new color in. do i just knit in the new color or is there a special way to insert it?? i'll be using it as faire isle, if that changes anything. sorry, its a dumb question, but i'm new to knitting and don't want to mess this up. thanks.
