On Twitter

Husband talked me into joining twitter. Having nothing of great importance I am posting a new scarf design for you to knit up with me. To catch everyone up to the twitter posts:

Lion Brand wool-ease 3 skeins, Size 8 US knitting needles, 4 stitch markers, cable needle or stitch holder which ever you prefer. Gauge 18 stitches equals 4" and 24 rows equals 4".

cast on 54 stitches. Pass the first stitch knit wise (but with the yarn in front of work), move yarn to back of work and knit all stitches. For entire scarf first stitch of every row is done the same. Knit 16 rows, Place a stitch marker after stitch 10, and 44. Rows 15-22 RS: Knit 10, Purl 34, Knit 10 WS: Knit entire row.

Begin pattern for big fat cable:

Place remaining 2 stitch markers after stitch 18 and 36.

Row 1: Knit 10, Purl 8, Knit 18, Purl 8, Knit 10
Row 2: Knit 18, Purl 18, Knit 18
Row 3: Knit 10, Purl 8, Knit 6, C12B, Purl 8 Knit 10
Row 4: Knit 18, Purl 18, Knit 18
Row 5 - 10 repeat rows 1 & 2
Row 11: Knit 10, Purl 8, C12F, Knit 6, Purl 8, Knit 10
Row 12: Knit 18, Purl 18, Knit 18
Row 13-16 repeat rows 1 & 2.

Continue in established pattern until scarf is at the length you prefer. Final rows
For Six rows, RS: Knit 10, Purl 34 Knit 10 WS: Knit 54, Final 16 Rows knit bind off.

Will post pictures when I finish the scarf myself.
