in the 'stitch and bitch nation' book, there is a scarf that i believe is called a cheat cable scarf, or something like that. well, i loved the idea of it, but already bought lion brand wool ease thick and quick for my christmas gift scarfs. what did i do? well i fixed up the pattern of course and loved the results of my even more cheatful cheat cable scarf. so i made one for a friend and this one i just finished for my grand mother, who is going to get it tonight. i thought she deserved one, she did teach me to knit after all..
merry christmas grandma!!

modeled by me. for those who want to know, the scarf itself is about 5 1/2 ft long.

and modeled by my floor.

and a better view of both sides. the back (left) is basically ribbed, but mines a bit wonkey for some reason. and the front is cabled. pretty amazing.

my grandmother loved it! and now i can continue to create one for myself, but first...

heres the tutorial. i am sorry if it is a bit confusing, but if you are confused, just let me know. ill answer any questions.
also note that this is the first tutorial i've ever made, so be kind.

size 13 US needles
yarn- lion brand wool ease (you will need 2)

gauge- 9st/4in

CO 13 st

row 1- K1, P2. repeat until one is left on the row, end K1

row 2- p1. heres where it gets confusing. K on the SECOND stitch on the left needle. don't move anything yet. then K on the FIRST stitch on the left needle. pull off those two stitches from the left needle. you should now have 3 st on your right needle. this is what makes your cable. if it helps, you are just making a cable stitch, but not taking any stitches off on a cable needle. after doing those first three stitches, repeat P, K second, K first, until one is left on the row, end P1

continue the row 1[back] and row 2[front] sequence until desired length, and voila! a beautiful new scarf.  Cheesy

Love it!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Just like everyone said, it's beautiful!  What kind of yarn did you use?  I'd love to replicate your scarf.  Smiley
