The next four blog posts are going to be crochet cables, starting with this simple cable scarf. If you are new to crochet cables this is a good way to get your feet wet.
I purchased this yarn from Etsy from a seller that was destashing, but you can use any yarn that you have around. The yarn I used was a 4 weight, which would be the minimum.
The buttons I lucked out and found at the dollar store, they are made from coconut husk.

- 4.5mm crochet hook
- darning needle
- 6 buttons
