The appeal of this shawl besides the beauty of cable and lace is starting with the longest edge and decreasing 4 stitches every other row until you finish. Who doesn't love a project that gets shorter as you go instead of longer!
The border is added by picking up all your edge stitches and working a 6-stitch cable, sideways. The border brings it all together and is a very attractive feature to the total look of the shawl.
"Lovina" features a very easy lace/cable repeat and is done with little difficulty.
There are charts and also written directions for those who love each. As a bonus I have added a scarf pattern using the same cable and lace pattern stitch. The border is worked in seed stitch.
5 stitches, 9 rows per inch in stocking stitch
I live in the quaint Alpine City of Gaylord MI. I learned to knit from my great grandmother at the age of 8. I am also known as O/C Knitiot, and I come by it naturally. Everything has to match & balance in my knitting. My friends tease me, but I secretly fear they will bury me with mismatched socks to get even.
