Here's a better pic of the BR hat from metaphysical muse's fabulous pattern:


Hat was cascade lanawool, and the button is hand hammered copper that I got at the antique store.

1 skein cascade magnum + size 35 needles + 3 hours =


SnB go everywhere cardigan. I couldn't get a decent action shot of this, so here it is laid out on the rug, at the mercy of Owen Meany...

Thanks for Looking!


ETA: I realized that what I wrote in the post later on was a little difficult to follow, since I don't really use patterns, so here's a nice shiny pattern for you for the Big Fat Cable Scarf...

Cascade Magnum - 1 skein
Size 35 Needles
Gauge is around 2st. per inch, not that it matters.

CO 12 St using knitted cast on (make a slip knot, knit this stitch onto the right  needle, then pass it back to the left needle. Knit into the space between those two stitches, then pass that stitch back onto the left needle etc. until you have 12)

Row 1: K1, P1, K1, K6, K1, P1, K1
Row 2: K1, P1, K1, P6, K1, P1, K1
Row 3, 5: Rep. row 1
Row 4, 6: Rep. row 2
Row 7: K1, P1, K1, Slip next 3 purlwise onto dpn or cable needle and move to front of work, K3, K3 from cable needle in the same order that they were slipped, K1, P1, K1
Row 8: Rep. row 2

Repeat these 8 rows until you're finished with the skein, ending on a row 6, then BO all stitches.

Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions, since this is the first pattern I've ever written out.

I love the scarf.   Did you use a pattern for that?  If so, which one and if not could you write one out?  TIA!!

Thanks guys!
All I did for the scarf was cast on 12 and do a 3 stitch seed stitch border (K1, P1, K1 on WS and RS) with a 6 stitch cable (after border and on a RS row, slip next 3 stitches to cable needle (or double point needle, or pencil, or if you're really desperate, just let them hang there), K the next 3 st on left needle, then K the stitches from the stitch holder in the same order that you slipped them) in the middle. I twisted the cable every 7 rows (on a RS row). It was muy simple, and tres fast. That magnum yarn is the bomb!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.
