I finished up my shawl so now i need to knit something for the store. I'm going for a little summer dress I guess and I really want to do something with a long cable going up the front and back. But, i'm having a hard time finding a really great cable to use.<br><br>
hoping someone here will share a link to a cable pattern (scarf, sweater, socks.. does't matter.. i just need the cable from it) they love or have admired.<br><br>
i'd really appreciate it!

Here are a few rockin cables...kinda involved, though:<br><br><a href="http://www.girlfromauntie.com/patterns/celtic/" target="_blank">http://www.girlfromauntie.com/patterns/celtic/</a><br><br>
off the top of my head, I'd check out/google the irish hiking scarf & also go to google & search there for cables -- I think it's Samus that has a neat one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

My favorite is Besotted -- pattern here: <a href="http://www.helloyarn.com/besottedcarf.htm" target="_blank">http://www.helloyarn.com/besottedcarf.htm</a><br><br>
I am making my husband a sweatervest with just one of these cables down the left side of the front -- sort of where a 1950s bowling shirt would have a design dripping down. It's easy to do just 1 repeat instead of the 3 shown on the scarf -- if you decide to try it, I can post the repeat here for you if you don't want to mess with it yourself. It's a super-easy cable to do and to memorize, too, despite its very elegant look.

I love the saxon braid from Samus. It's easier than it looks, as well.

My favorite cable is the fake one (<a href="http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/babymockcablehat.htm" target="_blank">like so</a>) that you don't actually have to cross stitches for <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> but I'm lazy.
