after SEVERAL failed attempts to complete a project (i'm incredibly impatient) i put down my knitting needles and picked up a crochet hook. that was working out well until i saw a cabled scarf that i really wanted. so i decided to give knitting another chance, this time w/ super chunky yarn and big needles. after reading through a kajillion cable instructions i finally decided on one to follow which worked out quite well!

so here's my scarf. its wool-ease thick and quick in spice.


here's a closeup of the cables


it was so easy and i was so happy with the results i started one for a friend. here it is




i've also been dying to make knitty's calorimetry for a while but never felt motivated enough to do it. but i managed to get this done in 2 afternoons and i love it!! i cast on 110 stitches which turned out to be too many but i used two buttons instead of one to hold it together which worked out well!

scarf pattern is in reply #8  Grin

thanks guys! for the scarf i followed these instructions for the cabling but i didn't follow her exact pattern. this is what i did

co 15 stitches.

row 1. knit
row 2. purl k3 p9 k3
row 3. knit
row 4. purl k3 p9 k3
row 5. k3. sl3 onto double pointed needle or cable needle or pencil, chopstick etc.. and hold in front of work. k3. k3 from other needle. k6.
row 6. purl k3 p9 k3
row 7. knit
row 8. purl k3 p9 k3
row 9. knit
row 10. purl k3 p9 k3
row 11. k6. sl3 onto other needle and hold in back of work. k3. k3 from other needle. k3.

repeat from row 2-11 until you reach your desired length! mine was about 1.5 skeins of wool-ease thick and quick on size 15 needles.

hope that was helpful! it's really simple to do and it was a really easy first cable project!


WOW love the hat !!! were did you get ? fing the pattern
 

it's actually less of a hat and more of a...head band/scarf/thing. but it's from knitty. here's the link. mine's not as wide because i was using leftover yarn  and ran out but i think it's the perfect size for my head!

Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

All of this is amazing. I'm still too afraid to try cabling.

Love the scarf! It's definitely better to be a needle and hook person instead of only doing one or the other!

i LOVE the orange yarn you used for the scarf!  it's hard to find some orange that isn't tacky or ugly (just my personal experience, which isn't very much).  bee-ee-ay-yootiful.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
