Pattern: Manitou Passage Scarf (rav link)
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted, Ravelry Red, 2.3 skeins
Needles: US 9
Notes: I modified the pattern. As written, the scarf is made of three 16-stitch cables, with a 3-stitch garter edge. I made mine to be four 12-stitch cables with no garter edge.
Work the cables every 12 rows. I worked two 12-stitch cables on row 6. Then the other two on row 12. And then you kind of get the staggered cables effect. I like it. After a nice block, the cables are smooth and flat. It pains me to give this away but it's a fairly late Christmas present to someone who received the cabled red hat and mittens.
It's hard to tell but this project is ALL ribbing. ALLLLLLLL ribbing. I am so thankful that I learned to knit continental.
