After a very tiring day yesterday (since Austin decided to be awake half the night), I managed to knit up the second half of the scarf. I must have been super tired as I grafted them together, only to find that I had one half facing the right way and the other half facing the wrong way! Argh! I am so new to grafting and paniced that I couldn't undo it, but I managed it and the halves are now sitting separate again waiting to be joined.
Judy has requested the pattern, but as I am not yet finished the scarf (still want to add a lace edge when my mauve 12ply yarn arrives) I will just share the stitch pattern for the cable panel. It is a very simple cable, and easy to remember the pattern without needing to refer to it while knitting:
Worked over 20 stitches.
1st and ever alt row (wrong side) Purl
2nd row: K6, C4B, C4F, K6
4th row: K4, C4B, K4, C4F, K4
6th row: K2, C4B, K8, C4F, K2
8th row: C4B, K12, C4F
Repeat these 8 rows.
See told you it was simple (I haven't done cables before!) I have worked it with 5 rows of moss stitch to start, and 6 stitches of moss stitch either side of the cable (32sts in total). Fun to knit and easy to grow on 5.5mm needles and using 12ply (heavy worsted) merino.
Now, have a happy Easter everyone, and don't eat too much chocolate!
