Irish Trace Cable Stitch Pattern

This Irish Trace Cable Stitch Pattern is perfect for a winter scarf or a cozy sweater.  While this is an easy pattern, experience using a cable needle is needed, since it's used in almost every row.  This is a great way for knitting fans to challenge themselves with the slightly more complicated cable stitch.
