On the Needles: Brown Cable Knit Scarf

I have finally tried cable knitting. And I am so loving it. This is going to be a 4 stitch rib with a cable running along the middle rib.
Instructions:
CO 20 stitches
I knitted the first row to create an easy guide to start the pattern.
Even rows K4, P4 repeat to the end
Odd rows P4, K4 repeat to the end
Repeat for rows 1-9. On the 10th row cable the 3rd rib.
Repeat pattern to the desired length.
