Brown Cable Knit Scarf

Hello,

I love the look of the cable knitting.  I never heard or saw a cable needle until I saw it on Youtube.  I don't like to spend money on something that I can find around the house.  So instead of using a cable needle, I found an old  pen about the size of my knitting needle (#10) to use as a cable needle.

 I knit this cable scarf hoping my husband would use it.   He does not wear scarf or gloves no matter how cold.  So I will have to wait and see if he will use it.   

 If you look closely at the two cables, they are a bit different.  To create the cable on the left, I moved the cable needle (pen)  in front of the work.  To create the cable on the right, I moves the cable needle to the back of the work.



Have a wonderful weekend!

Helen

Pretty scarf, Helen! How do you make a hook on the pen that you used?

Very nice. My husband doesn't wear a scarf either. How clever of you to make your own cable needle

I haven't made anything with cables yet, but I've experimented with them enough to know they're lots of fun! Your scarf turned out very nice -- hopefully you'll have some luck in getting your hubby to wear it!

I am amazed all at the new techniques you so quickly learn and soon are an expert. This is so lovely,I haven't heard of cable knitting. So I have learnt something new today.
