This was my first project to using cabling. I made the two copper colored sections separately.

  • Size 14 needles
  • Cast on 12 stitches
  • K12
  • P12

And kept going until I had 26 inches. I did that for both pieces.

The middle blue part was where I did cabling.

  • Size 14 needles
  • Cast on 18 stitches
  • K6, Slip 3 to the cable needle, K3, K3 from the cable needle, K6
  • P18
  • K18
  • P18
  • Repeat last two rows rows 2x
  • The start at the beginning again.
  • Do this until you have about 22-24 inches, depending on how snug you want the neck warmer to be. I did 24.
  • Take safter pins and meet up the ends of the strips. Put the two longer straight pieces to the outside and the shorter cabled piece in the middle.
  • Stretch the shorter middle piece to line up with the longer outer pieces. Use the safety pins to hold it in place.
  • Now take some yarn and stitch the outer pieces onto the middle one.

Once you are done, the shorter, cabled piece will pull the longer outer pieces into almost a ruffled gather. I used big buttons and sewed them on to make it a single ring. It has enough stretch to be pulled on and off easily enough to not need to actually function as buttons. Then take yarn and
