Day 270 and Dad
This is some serious crochet cabling! It's not hard and I highly recommend the method.
Here's the gist of it. Short stitches make up the background. Long stitches are made around the posts of the stitches 2 rows below and stand above the surface. You can stitch around posts further to the left or to the right to get angled cables and even cross the cables. It's completely a different technique than knitting but the look is just as detailed.
Here's the pattern from the ravelry database: Crochet Cables Scarf
and here's my own project page.
