Tri-Colour Scarf

I am about a third of the way of my first Irish Hiking Scarf! I picked Patons Classic Wool Merino, in Denim Blue, Cream and Grey Mix. I wanted a baby-blue and I think it would have looked better but this is lightest blue I could find. In spite of that, I do like it very much, and I am having lots of fun! I changed the original pattern by adding a 4th cable (I wanted it wider) and by making a 1x1 ribbed edge. If I have any wool left, I would like to try a hair band wide enough to cover my ears from the cold. I will definitely knit more of these!!

Ohhhhhhhhh! The stripes are so daring! I've been wondering what this fabulous pattern would look like with stripes - yours turned out lovely! Way to take a chance!

How many stitches did you cast on to add the extra cable?
