Cable Knit Throw

I love this color of yarn, and I love the cable knit pattern.

This is one of those projects that takes a while, and fills in the gaps between other projects. 

This throw was made by casting on 188 stitches, size 8 needle, medium yarn. KK, PP until desired length. Add one stitch in the middle of next row. 
Slip first stitch, (cable pattern), purl last stitch. 

Cable Pattern
1st row - ktb,p,ktb,*pp,kkkkkk,pp,ktb,p,ktb, start from * 
2nd row - opposite of first row. 
3rd row - cable 3 kkk, kkk3, k cabled 3, continue with pattern. 

Repeat third row ever 6th row. 

Repeat for desired length. 

Decrease 1 next row, KK, PP until desired length. 

Bind off. 

I added a slip stitch at the beginning of every row, and a purl stitch at the end of every row to make the work lay flat and to give it a nice clean edge. If you chose not to create the throw in this manner add three stitches in the beginning ribbing row, and decrease three when starting ending ribbing row. 


Kayaking the Willametta

I started out at Oak's Park, then I went around Ross Island. It took about four hours. I was exhausted when I got back to Oak's Park...
