The perfect knitting project for binge watching the latest series on Netflix and incidentally, how I developed this pattern. To Breaking Bad, if you must know. I’m sure Walter White would be proud.

 

The pattern is easy to follow and repeats the same eight rows for the length of the scarf, which can be as long or as short as you like. If you have never knitted cables before, the pattern includes photos and instructions how to do it. By the time you’re finished this project, you’ll have mastered the art of the cable stitch, have a lovely scarf and hopefully have closure for all your favourite characters.

 

Apparently, I binge watch more than I realize as I have a number of patterns available to download. If you are looking for more knitting and crochet patterns, be sure to check out my blog, my website KweenBee.com or wherever you originally downloaded this pattern.

How to Make the Cable:

C2F – Cable 2 forward.

With your cable needle, slip 2 stitches off the needle

 

Pull the stitches towards the front of your work.

Knit the next 2 stitches.

Knit the stitches from the cable needle.

Knit the last 2 stitches of the cable (accounted for in the pattern with the K2).

 

C2B – Cable 2 backward.

Knit the first 2 stitches of the cable (accounted for in the pattern with the K2.)

 

With your cable needle, slip 2 stitches off the needle

Pull the stitches towards the back of your work.

 

Knit the next 2 stitches.

Knit the stitches from the cable needle.

Hints and Tips:

Be very careful to get the stitches right at the beginning when forming the cable pattern. Once the pattern become more set, it becomes easy to see where you need to purl and knit and what stitches form the cable.

 

The back of the cables are ALWAYS purl stitches and the stitch on either side of them is ALWAYS a knit.

 

The stitch at the beginning of each row is slipped off and not knitted. This gives the edges of the scarf less stretch and lets the scarf hold it’s edge through wear and washings.

 

The easiest way to make any cable pattern is to see the pattern as panels versus individual rows. Unfortunately, there’s no other way to write a knitting pattern other than rows. If you see the scarfs pattern as the knitted edge, the moss stitch panel (the K1 P1 portions), the cable, moss stitch panel, another cable, moss stitch panel, knitted edge, it becomes very easy to do.
