Picture of Cable-plait scarf
I knit.

A lot.

Kiteman has been telling me for a long time that I should start creating my own patterns, and I have finally given in; this scarf is my first wholly-original project.

Step 1: What you need

Picture of What you need
Obviously you'll need wool.  I used King Cole Haze double knit* wool, and 4mm needles.  Because this is a scarf, if you use different wool or needles, you'll just end up with a different-sized scarf, rather than a piece of clothing that doesn't fit.

You'll also need a cable needle, scissors and wool sewing  needle.

Abbreviations
K = Knit
P=Purl
C4B= Cable 4 back, slip next 2 stitches onto cable needle and place at back of work, K next 2 sts from left needle, then K sts from cable needle.
C4F= Cable 4 back, slip next 2 stitches onto cable needle and place at front of work, K next 2 sts from left needle, then K sts from cable needle.





*What British knitters call "double knit" ("DK"), American knitters call "worsted".

Nice work! Very cosy-looking! Does it look different on the back?
