"Basic Cable Can be Nice" Scarf

I completed the scarf and I could not be happier.  This was a pleasure to knit, and thanks to the generosity of the designer who offered his pattern at no cost, I am able to use this for teaching new knitters the basic cable.

The Icelandic wool makes for a very rugged and chunky scarf.  As you can see from the photos, it stands upright around the neck.  Imagine knitting this in a buttery soft merino or alpaca.  The fabric would drape nicely; giving the scarf a completely different look.
