Here and There Cables

Hi! I'm new to knitting, and I am doing this pattern. From the look of the book and other posts, the cables go everywhere, but with my yarn, they only show up on row 7 in the exact spots the cables should be knitted. Otherwise, the rest of the rows are knit 3, purl 3 and they show that very distinctly. Can anyone give me any help at all? I must be reading the directions incorrectly. Thanks so much!

    I think it takes a couple of repeats to start looking like anything. The good thing about those knits and purls looking like what they are is that you can tell if you mess up.

    First off, this cable pattern isn't built on top of each other like cables for a sweater. Regular cables are usually just on one side of the project. By having the cable on the 7th row, it places the cable in alternating positions so that you get the wavy effect. It will take several repeats to actually see the out come, buy hang with it and do exactly what the pattern says. You will love the results. Blessed Be, Satori

    Oh, yes. The very thing that concerns you is the saving grace of this scarf. I loved knitting it. Only thing is, is that it's so dense. I used a very lofty lightweight alpaca, handpainted.
