My sister made this neck warmer from the cable chart I made out of this Chloe hooded cardi.
http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/24179

She is an art student in New York and she whipped this up out of necessity, from Rowanspun Aran left over from her previous project and some recycled buttons from an old coat - hence the name in the pattern Tongue

By the way, the cables seem to be have been worked every 6th rows in the original cardi, not 4th rows as I put it.

I myself plan to make a hoodie out of this chart Smiley

We also decided to try publishing the pattern in PDF format - you can download it here Tongue

The file's quite big for its content... we tried to size it down, but for some reason we couldn't.

Anyway, it's my first attempt at writing a pattern and I'm excited!

Edited: You can queue it on Ravelry!

wow thanks so much for sharing your pattern, it looks great!! I've been looking at neck warmers since the weather has got quite chilly now.

The chloe hoodie looks really nice, I can't believe the price of it though, i'm glad i knit LOL!!

Well done, the neck warmer and the way the pattern is written seems  well explained and understandable  Smiley

Great neckwarmer!  I have one question: is there a row of garter stitch on the edges?  The cable is 16 stitches wide. At 3 repeats, that's 48 stitches, but the cast on is 50.

Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

I meant st st, but you can work the edges either in garter st or in st st, whatever way you prefer Smiley

I'd do st st, but last time I did that, it rolled like crazy.  I imagine it wouldn't make much difference when it's only a single stitch, though.

Thanks for the clarification!

I decided g st will be better after all, and updated the pattern.
Thanks for pointing it out Smiley

Beautiful job and thank you for the pattern!  I plan to make it for my mother-in-law for Christmas, but I'm thinking about picking up and adding ribbing along the long edges as well.
