Pattern description from Knitting for Dummies: “This scarf shows off three eccentric cables - eccentric because the turning row alternates between 6 and 10 rows. The middle cable is turned on different rows than the ones on either side of it. Staggering the turning rows allows the cables to fit into each other - when the outside cables are expanding, the center cable is contracting and vice versa. If you want to make the project easier, work the turning rows on all three cables at the same time. The background for the cables is garter stitch - a good stitch to use for a scarf because it’s reversible and lies flat. Figure 9-14 shows the chart you need to make this scarf. You can see the scarf pictured in the color insert.”
