I have been on a scarf-knitting kick lately, but at least this last one is one I can actually wear in South Florida. It’s a skinny scarf, made from this pattern. I had wanted to try knitting cables for a while but I was scared because it looks difficult. It wasn’t difficult for the most part. The part I did find difficult was ripping back when I made a mistake. I couldn’t figure out how to arrange the stitches on the needle so I just ripped back a few rows until I got to a row where the cabling wasn’t an issue. I probably wouldn’t know how to fix it either if I dropped a stitch. I don’t love the yarn, it’s already pilling (it’s cheap!), but I do love the scarf. I still have to weave in the ends but that should take just a few minutes.
I completed 100 cable repeats and knitted 6 rows of garter stitch at the beginning and the end, and held the cable needle at the front. The scarf is about 52 inches long.
