Repeat these 8 rows until you have almost finished the yarn, ending on a row 8 leaving enough yarn to cast off.
As you knit row 8 drop the purl stitch in between each of the cables. When you drop the stitches let the stitch run down to the beginning of your Cast on row.
56 stitches remain.
Thread the cast off thread into the tapestry needle. Twist the cast off edge once to create a moebius twis. Sew the cast off edge to the cast on edge and weave in all loose ends then wrap yourself up in it!
