Cable Knitting

I decided it was about time I get over my fear of cable knitting. I found myself a dirt easy free pattern at :

Quick and Easy Cabled Scarf

US size 11 knitting needles
Worsted weight wool
Cable needle
Yarn needle

You simply cast on 14 stitches.

Rows 1, 3, 5, and 7: K3, P8, K3
Rows 2, 4, and 6: Knit
Row 8: K3, slip next four stitches onto cable needle and hold in front, K4, K4 from cable needle, K3.

That's it...repeat rows 1-8 until scarf measures 38" or desired length. Cast off and weave in ends.

Anyway, I'm amazed how easy and fun this is...I can't wait to try another cable pattern that's a little bit more difficult...

I was surprised how easy the cable stitch was when I was making all the hats for my daughter and grand daughters.
