I learned to cable about a week ago, and knew exactly which project would be my first for it. A month ago, I found a yarn shop a few blocks from home and found the PERFECT yarn for a scarf for my mother. (She has red hair and these gorgeous blue-green eyes that the yarn colors match.) I knew that I wanted to make her a cable scarf, so I wrote a pattern suitable for me and went at it. It took me about a week to complete the scarf (about 10-15 hours of knitting! I wish I were faster!), but I'm super-psyched it's done.

Scarf!

I really am excited about it!

I used Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky Bulky Knitting Weight, which is 75% Acrylic and 25% Wool. I used size 10 needles, and it took me two skeins (which equals to 286 Yards).

In case anyone might want the pattern, I went ahead and wrote it out. If anyone uses it, I totally want to see the finished product!!

1) Cast on 34 stitches
2) p4 k6 p4 k6 p4 k6 p4
3) k4 p6 k4 p6 k4 p6 k4
4) p4 k6 p4 k6 p4 k6 p4 (same as 2)
5) k4 p6 k4 p6 k4 p6 k4 (same as 3)
6) p4 sl 3 sts to cn, k3 from LH needle, k3 from cn, p4, sl 3 sts to cn, k3 from LH needle, k3 from cn, p4, sl 3 sts to cn, k3 from LH needle, k3 from cn, p4
7) go back to step 3 and repeat 3-6 until scarf is at length desired
Cool cast off as usual

It's my first time writing directions. Hope it isn't too sloppy!

Her birthday is mid-November, so she'll see it soon. She doesn't wear hats....maybe I'll make her matching mittens for Christmas.
