On, Off, On, Off the Sticks

I keep trying to modify a reversible cable pattern, and the stitches look good. The yarn does not. I’m trying to use a super bulky velour or velvet yarn, and the needles/yarn combo is not making a tight enough fabric to show off the cabling. So I’ve ripped the scarf out twice, at least. No pics. I’ve decided that the fabric will be too stiff if I change to a smaller needle, and have settled on a simple rib knit scarf, k2, p2 repeat. I hate to admit ‘defeat.’ The idea of a reversible cable is so cool. The idea of a snuggly warm velvet scarf is also cool. Or warm. I’ll have to keep the reversible cable in long term memory.
