Skill Level:

advanced skill level requirement Expert

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is a charted design. The main cable has been divided into 4 charts. The smaller cable is a single chart.

Pattern Description:

This is not for the timid.

The pattern is for a rectangular shawl. The main design is a large (160 stitches by 232 rows), irregular, non-repeating Celtic knot worked as a cable. There is also a second, smaller (58 stitches by 63 rows) cable design.

The main cable uses my method of creating a raised horizontal strand.

The intarsia effect was created by dropping the Copper Bamboo thread and working the cable strands using only the background wool. The design can also be worked as intarsia cables or using flat intarsia.

The pattern includes basic instructions for the shawl, yarn requirements, an explanation of the technique used for the horizontal strands, 5 pages of charts, and some images showing close-ups how the horizontal strands are worked.

Gauge:

34 stitches and 42 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on US 3 (3.25mm) needles

Materials:

  • As pictured the shawl requires about 1720 yds (1573m) of lace weight wool and 2 cones (622 yds / 568m) of Habu's N-69 Copper Bamboo. If the N-69 is not available, it is similar in size to sewing thread.

You Will Also Need:

  • I strongly recommend using 17 stitch markers to help track your location in the chart. You will also need a cable needle, or double point needle of about the same gauge as your needles.

Suggested yarn:

1850 yards of Lace weight

Colorway:

off white wool and brown secondary thread

I started knitting & sewing as a child so I've tried a variety of techniques. A couple of years ago I started writing up some of my designs for others to enjoy.
