As a beginning knitter, cables may seem terrifying. I know they were to me, but after watching a simple tutorial on YouTube I caught the hang of it. However, when looking at patterns, they were super confusing. Things like slipping stitches “purl-wise” and knitting and purling through the back loops were scary to me as a beginning cable knitter. After playing around with a few things and drawing a few diagrams, I came up with this pattern. It’s a simple pattern, the scarf is about 6 inches wide and you can make it as long as you like.

I used size 10 knitting needles with worsted weight yarn and a size 3 dpn to hold the stitches. But use whatever size needles you’re comfortable with or to match up with your yarn. There was one point I was using a bobby pin to hold my stitches so use whatever you have handy.
