My Chunky Cable Simple Scarf Pattern

In an effort to make some quick gifts, I made this scarf up very quickly.

I used one skein of Wool-Ease Thuck & quick Super Bulky Wt.

I was going for a easy scarf, one that would be good if you have never knitted any cables, and would be unisex.

  1. Thank you for putting this pattern on line. It has helped me a lot. I was wondering at which row do you stop to cast off?
    Thank you for your help

  2. I cast off, when the scarf was long enough, and at a point when the cable looked fairly flat. (depending on the yarn you choose). Usually at the point before the next cable begins or about row 8.
    Thanks glad you enjoyed the pattern

  3. This pattern is awesome - thanks for sharing!
    Taught myself how to cable while making this scarf - and now I am hooked!
