Cabled Scarf

My mom is modeling her new cabled scarf that I made her. Lately I have loved using Lion Brand's Wool Ease Thick & Quick yarn, especially in the Fig color. It's relatively cheap at $4 - $6.50 per skein depending on which sale you can catch at Michael's or Hobby Lobby and it does knit up quickly and is warm. It's 80% acrylic and 20% wool so it's not the best mix, but at least there's some wool in it. This pattern was also from the Lion Brand Yarn website. I made it about half as long as it called for, I used two skeins and it called for 2 each of two different colors, one color on each end. I thought that was a bit odd, so I modified it.
