I apologize for my lack of familiarity with the posting process. Here I have my first completed cabled scarf. I had to crochet a border to prevent the scarf from rolling up. I have included the links to photos of the finished pieces. Enjoy.
The Scarf follows a six stitch cable pattern. I worked with US size 9 needles, and two colors in a soft worsted weight yarn.
The cable is as follows:
Cast on 23 stitches
Row 1 (and all wrong side rows) P1 (K2, P6, K2, P1) twice
Row 2 (Right Side) K1 (P2, K6, P2, K1) twice
Row 4 K1 (P2, K6, P2, K1) twice
Row 6 K1 (P2, C6B [Slip the next 3 stitches onto the cable needle and hold to the back of the piece, Knit 3 from the left needle and then Knit the three on the cable needle] P2 K1) twice
Row 8 K1 (P2, K6, P2, K1) twice
repeat the pattern until the scarf is as long as desired.
Once I finished the scarf, I crocheted two rows on each side of the scarf to prevent it from curling.
The hat pattern:
Cast on 64 stitches,
work in a K2 P2 rib stitch for 2 inches.
switch to a stockinette stitch striping colors as desired (have fun and be creative)
once piece measures 5.5 inches, begin decrease:
K1, (K7, K2tog) across
K1 (K6, K2tog) across
etc. continue until it become K1 (K2tog) all the way across, cut the yarn, string it through the remaining loops, and using the tail, sew edges of hat together (with tapestry needle), or crochet the edges together, sealing the hat and making it wearable.
