Double Cable Scarf

Here is another double cable scarf I made from One Skein by Leigh Radford. This one is done with Cascade Yarns Pima Silk Yarn in Pink - Color Number 6915. I used only one skein so it is rather short. Will make a great tuck in scarf to wear during October during breast cancer awareness month.
I really like the way that cables look. They are a little twitchy though with the cotton yarn. Knitting the stitches that are held on the cable needle is a little hard. I've tried both knitting off the cable needle as well as moving the stitches back onto the left-hand needle. I like knitting off the cable needle best.

I'm hoping that with a less stiff yarn it will be easier. Not that this yarn is stiff. It is really soft. I was surprised since before knitting with pima cotton yarn all I had used was Peaches and Cream which is scratchy.

Hi Rhonda! Just finished listening to episode 16 and had to check out your web page/blog. I love the cabled scarf! I will certainly add the Cascade yarn to my WIP's list.
I actually am wondering about the secret pal knitting group you spoke about on the podcast..how do I get involved?

Rhonda,
Do you have the pattern posted for your scarf? I'd love to make one.
Thanks.

The pattern is from the book, One Skein. There a lot of great patterns in there. I highly recommend it.
