Yaaaaay, my first-ever cabling project! I'm very proud of how it came out. It's well over 5 feet long, and I'm only 4'8", so it will keep me very warm in the upcoming Chicago winter.

Sorry about the horrendous picture--dorm lights are not meant for pretty photography. A better idea of the colour/pattern:



Pattern at: http://www.helloyarn.com/besottedcarf.htm ; done in Cascade 220 Lake Chelan Heather (just under 2 skeins) and size 8 Takumi bamboos.

I honestly don't know what FO means, but I love this scarf! I'm new to knitting, so I'm still too chicken to try cables T-T

This is a really cute design, and you did an awesome job at it! Thanks for sharing Smiley

You should be very proud of yourself-- it looks fantastic!

"Fetching" from Knitty was my first project involving cables, and I'd recommend it for anyone trying them for the first time. Cabling is a LOT easier than it looks and so much fun.
