Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cables
  • Increasing
  • Reading charts

Pattern Description:

The meandering cable in the middle of the colorwork of this shawl give the illusion of complexity, when in reality it is really quite simple. Garter stitch panels with increases done in every other row. A simple four-stitch cable and striping color work in the middle of the shawl give a little bit of WOW.

Because it is working in a light weight fingering weight yarn, the shawl is light to wear and will keep the chill off in any evening out whether you are with friends drinking a pint, or in your little black dress enjoying a night on the town.
