this is a (somewhat highly) modified version of yarnhag's cabled scarf (at http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=134836.0).  it's a christmas present for my boyfriend's mother, in return for her lovely gift of a supernice needle roll filled with bamboo needles.  (this is essentially the best present I could ask for.)

I used 2.5 balls of years-old wool-ease in some color I'm not sure they make anymore and size 8 needles, with 12" pieces for fringe (so 6" when each piece is folded in half, which is really pretty darn big, but I think it works), 3 pieces every 2 stitches.  the whole scarf is about 6' long (she's a tall lady), but it's very thick so doesn't seem quite so big when it's on.  basically, I wanted to keep it but couldn't let myself.

Congrats--this looks really great! I'm so bad about knitting gifts. If I don't like it, I don't give it! If I like it enough to give, it pains me a bit to give it away. :-) Anyway, she's very lucky. And so are you to have gotten such a thoughtful gift from her!

they're braided cables, three across.  there's probably a name for their particular configuration, but I don't know it.

I love braided cables! I haven't figured out how to make them....yet!

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

they're supereasy, eatyourhartout.  no harder than single cables, only a trifle more fidgety.  (I think two or three times I cabled a row backwards, then had to go take it out.  ew.)

Could you pleasepleaseplease post a pattern? I absolutely adore this scarf (and adore even more it was made with an affordable yarn!)...

I loved the scarf you based it on, and love your variation even more...

sure, roxy.  give me a day or two?  (I'm heading back home tomorrow, where I think my pattern lives, but I'm going to have a lot of meetings/work coming up, so it could take a little bit before I post.)
