I'm so glad to have found this easy cable scarf from the http://stitchdcblog.blogspot.com/!!!
I did change it a bit by reversing the first and second rows so that I would be on the knit side for the cable, and I used Lion Brand's Wool Ease Thick 'N Quick yarn instead. I found that one skein is enough for the scarf itself, but had to steal a little bit of yarn from a second skein in order to do the pom poms.
For the pom poms, I used Clover's Extra Large pom pom maker, but if you wanted to leave the pom poms off, it looks very nice without them. I think these scarves will make wonderful holiday presents...
Only took me two evenings to knit this up...I did stay with #19 needles and for my cable holder, I used a #13 double pointed needle since that was the biggest one I had...I will be getting Clover's huge cable holder hook shortly to make it easier still to knit the next one.
