Silly but quick question...where is this pattern from?  I'm newbie-ish and have wanted to move onto cabling but was a little intimidated by the idea of a cabled sweater (what can I say...I get bored quickly with projects, a cabled sweater would NEVER get finished).

Everyone's scarves are turning out beautifully...I really would like to give this a try.  Smiley

Kimmy, my scarf isn't drapey either.  It's more like a cabled plank.  Would using bigger needles make my next scarf less stiff?

i'm not actually knitting this scarf right now, but i live with the guy who is using the kid classic Smiley  bigger needles would definitely make it drape more--you just need to find the happy medium between drapey and hole-y.

Gaiter_girl--at the bottom of the very first post in this thread is a link to the pattern!

Oh my goodness, cabled plank is right. I have about three feet done now, and I hope my husband's neck doesn't break when he wears it.

Thanks for posting the link to that pattern, Sewer Rat. I can't promise to knit along with you, but I'd love to make that scarf for myself someday (I vowed to finish all my projects for Christmas before starting something for myself, and the way I'm going it will probably be New Years before I get a chance!). Keep us updated on your progress!

So I'm not knitting this scarf.  I am, however, knitting the complimentary wrist warmers & will knit the scarf soon-ish.  The pattern for the wrist warmers is here:  http://wineandneedles.blogspot.com/2004/12/wrist-warmer-pattern.html

And here's what I have done



The pattern (that is not mine, just one that I came across) is just a modified version of the original, is also very easy, and is just letting me do something small while I wait on yarn to come in for my mum's bday gift.  Plus it's great practice for the actual scarf.

Okay, so I finished my wrist warmers a few minutes ago.  They were a great project for my day off




I'm  debating on whether I want to dye them or not.  They match everything right now, which I like, but they're kind of bland, which I don't.

Whoa, atla, those look great!  I will definitely make some for Christmas presents.  If you do dye your wristwarmers, please post a pic.  Was the mattress stitch hard?  I've never successfully seamed anything.

i finished one armwarmer yesterday! it was really easy, they only took me a few hours, and the second one is about 1/4 done. i love the pattern. i used carron simply soft in grey, and added ribbing at the top, too! they turned out wonderful. i love everyone's projects!

sewer rat- the mattress stitch wasn't hard at all, and w/ the pattern, it looks great.

I second that.  The mattress stitch was surprisingly easy.  This was my first project using it, too.  (since this was my second project ever, and the first was a scarf.)
