Pink Cable Braid Scarf


I haven't been working on many knitting projects this winter but I did just finish up a scarf incorporating a braid cable knit. I'm still new to cables, but they are fun and add lots on nice texture.  I used a size 5 needle with sport weight yarn. The white was something old in my bag I was excited to use up. The bright pink yarn I picked up at the Bazaar Bizarre holiday fair in San Francisco. It's hard to see but the pink has little sparkly bits running through it.

Here are the basic instructions I used for just the braid cable:

Braid/plait cable
Right cable   panel of 13 sts

6-sts right cable: Sl sts to cn and hold to front of work, k3,k3 from cn
Row 1 (RS); P2, k9, p2.
Row 2 and all WS rows: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Row 3: P2, 6-sts left cable, k3, p2.
Row 5: Rep row 1.
Row 7: P2, k3, 6-st right cable, p2.

Mail Bunnies

Just in case you weren't getting enough drawings of my rabbits, for the back of my and Alec's wedding announcement I did a spot illustration of the rabbits eating and reading our letters.



Check out the awesome cover image that Alec illustrated for the announcement.
