Hi, why, when I ask for a cable knit scarf for men, I am shown scarves for women. It is sooo frustrating....thanks

When beginning the pattern (after the first 3 rows of k1,p1 and the 4th row of increasing 5) at 73 sts., there are 9 extra sts. on the needle because the pattern is 16 sts. (4 x 16 = 64 plus 9 = 73). What does one do with the extra 9 sts.??

Did nobody get back to you with an answer for this? Am struggling myself with the same problem.

They make the spacers between the sets of cable pattern.

How many stitches do you cast on for the cable hat?

English is not my first language. Could someone translate the part for the part of the shawl and the hat for me in Dutch? I read K and P1 Can somebody tell me what those mean.
