Have you always wanted to learn to cable but thought you couldn’t do it on your own? If so, this scarf is for you. The pattern has a simple cable combined with knit and purl stitches that provide extra texture. I have published a video to accompany this pattern to show you exactly how to cable. The written instructions are very detailed. When you finish this scarf, you will understand how to cable and can move on to more challenging patterns.
