awareness ribbon scarf - free knitting pattern

A subtle way to show your support. The ribbon is a combination of several existing ribbon patterns, modified to blend within the rows of cables. I worked this one in a neutral oatmeal color, as a gift for my father-in-law, but you could use any color.
 
materials:
sz. 8 needles
approx. 350 yds. worsted weight yarn
(sample was knit with Lion Brand Wool-Ease, 2 skeins with some leftover)

gauge:
18 sts x 24 rows = 4"


stitch explanations:
2/1 RPC = Sl 1 to cn, hold to back, k2; p1 from cn
2/1 LPC = Sl 2 to cn, hold to front, p1; k2 from cn
2/2 LC = Sl 2 to cn, hold to front, k2; k2 from cn
3/3 LC = Sl 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front of work, k3, then k3 from cable needle. 
m1Lp = make 1 left purlwise - insert left needle from front to back under bar between next 2 sts, and purl this new stitch through the back loop
m1Rp = make 1 right purlwise - insert left needle from back to front under bar between next 2 sts, and purl this new stitch
directions:
Cast on 40 stitches.
Work in Ribbing Pattern until piece measures 2 ½ in. from beginning.
Work one sequence of Ribbon Pattern (22 rows), then Rows 7-8 of Cable Pattern.
Continue working in Cable Pattern until desired length.
Work Ribbing Pattern for 2 ½ in.
Bind off all stitches, weave in ends, block lightly.
