After knitting those swatches last week, I decided to do a simple project involving cables: a scarf. I found an easy pattern on Ravelry, and hunkered down with some yarn that I otherwise had no idea what to do with.
Here’s what I’ve come up with so far. It’s a simple pattern to memorize, and I would recommend it for anyone who wants to learn cables. I recommend using a pattern with straight needles to start with has not to get a jumbled up with a circular or DPN’s. At least that’s what seems to be helping me out.
I’m still having a little trouble juggling my regular needles with the cable needle, but I’m getting better at it. It’s all about practice.
