I LOVE your hiking scarf with the different middle cable color!!! Would you mind sharing how you achieve that? :)

Hope you come back for the answer :-) I knit across with green and then start the blue yarn and make sure the strand of blue crosses over (not under) the green yarn. Knit the second section in blue then switch to another ball of the green. Then start knitting with green but make sure to cross the green yarn over the blue strand. Then on the other side I do the same. It's really easy... maybe I'll take a photo to show what I mean :-)

Amber,

I came back! ;) Just goes to show how much I wanted to learn about the colored cable, I think it is such a great idea. Makes for a beautiful scarf! Thanks for taking the time to answer my question, I wouldn't mind the pic as it might help others too.
