Learn To Cable Scarf

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease« Thick & Quick«

GAUGE:

9½ sts = 4 in. [10 cm] over Scarf Pattern Stitch.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

CABLE STITCH EXPLANATIONS

T3B (Twist 3 Back)

Slip 1 st to a cable needle and leave at the back of your work, k 2 sts from your left needle, then p the1 st from cable needle.

T3F (Twist 3 Front)

Slip 2 sts to a cable needle and leave at the front of your work, p 1 st from your left needle, then k the 2 sts from cable needle.

C3B (Cable 3 Back)

Slip 1 st to a cable needle and leave at the back of your work, k 2 sts from your left needle, then k the 1 st from cable needle.

C3F (Cable 3 Front)

Slip 2 sts to a cable needle and leave at the front of your work, k 1 st from your left needle, then k 2 sts from cable needle.

NOTES:

A perfect way to learn to cable! If you know how to knit and purl, you can make this beautiful Scarf. Just work the stitches carefully across each row, working the cable according to the directions in the Cable Stitch Explanations.

Basically, a cable is nothing more than moving stitches so that they change places with other stitches. To move stitches, just slip the indicated number of stitches off your left needle and onto a cable needle. Allow the cable needle to hang from your knitting with the stitches on it while you work stitches from your left needle. Then, following the specific row directions, work the stitches from the cable needle.

Learn To Cable Scarf Reviewed by Amanda on 2010-01-01 ****
Just finished this scarf last night. was a great project to do and was very easy to follow. the only problem is that the scarf curls in on itself. I will have to block it. maybe trying to do a garter stitch border instead of the one in the pattern would stop this from happening?
