Celtic Cable Knitting Pattern!

Ok here is your very first free pattern from me to you!!!! This beautiful Celtic Cable pattern can be incorporated into a sweater or hat or just make it into a scarf.

Making a scarf is a great way to learn and master a new pattern. You should never try to make a sweater from it right off the bat. You need to get your tension just right, especially for cables!

k = knit
p = purl
c4f = (cable 4 front)- slip 2 stitches to a cable needle and hold at the front of the work, knit 2, then knit the 2 stitches from the cable needle.
c4b = (cable 4 back)- slip 2 stitches to a cable needle and hold at the back of the work, knit 2, then knit the 2 stitches from the cable needle.
cr3l = slip 2 stitches to a cable needle and hold at the front of the work, purl 1, then knit 2 from the cable needle.
