I'm venturing into cables, found them quite intimidating but now they're easy, just a pain in the ass...even made up my own scarf pattern, very simple, i'm sure someone's already come up with it, but here it is:
K 4 rows
1)k2, p2, sl2 to cn & hold in front, k2, k2 from cn, p2, k2, p2, sl2 to cn & hold in back, k2, k2 from cn, p2, k2
2) p2, k2, p4, k2, p2, k2, p4, k2, p2
3) k2, p2, k4, p2, k2, p2, k4, p2, k2
4) as row 2
5) as row 3
6) as row 2
Repeat to desired length, ending row 1.
K 4 rows, BO.
it's hard to describe, i apologize for the lack of photo. it's got two cables that twist in opposite directions and i think it's pretty, i'll try to update with a photo.
