LOVE cables and just about anything that has them. This pretty pattern was actually fun to make. About the time you’re bored with the garter stitch body, the edging starts and it’s kind of fun to do, so it went by faster than I expected. The yarn is acrylic Kraemer Yarns Perfection DK, so it’s washable. Planning to use this as a winter bulky scarf, so I like washable and I’ll make it again, but with a nicer yarn – someday.
