the never ending Irish Hiking Scarf

Yvette, my dear dear fellow knitter added to a popular Irish Hiking Scarf pattern online to make it wider with an extra cable. I've decide to NOT undo this beautiful scarf and just do my best to finish it. I'm so bad with patterns, but if I want to be any kind of decent knitter, I must practice the cables, the drop stitches, the increases, and all the other good stuff that make beautiful things. For the knitters out there, here's the pattern. Plus, I'm putting it on my blog for a reference because I keep printing it out over and over.

Irish Hiking Scarf

Here's the pattern for an extra cable.

Note: I recommend that you knit with a slightly smaller needle for the first 8 rows to prevent the ends from flairing out a bit. Then switch to a larger size needle.

Cast on 54 stitches.

Row 1. (WS) K2, P2, K2, P6, K2, P2, K2, P6, K2, P2, K2, P6, K2, P2, K2,P6,K2,P2,K2
Row 2. (RS) K4, P2, K6, P2, K2, P2, K6, P2, K2, P2, K6, P2, K2, P2,K6,P2,K4
Row 3. (WS) repeat row 1
Row 4. (RS) repeat row 2
Row 5. (WS) repeat row 1.
Row 6. (RS) repeat row 2.
Row 7. (WS) repeat row 1.
Row 8. (RS) K4, P2, C6F, P2, K2, P2, C6F, P2, K2, P2, C6F, P2, K2,P2,C6F,P2,K4

Repeat these rows to desired length, ending on row 7. Bind off.

C6F = Slip 3 sts. onto a cable needle and hold to front of work. K3, then K the 3 sts. off cable needle.

Happy Knitting.
