Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Increases, decreases, cabling

Pattern Description:

The whole time I was knitting/designing this pattern I kept thinking of wrought iron scrollwork designs. Created with cabling, this design has a lot of subtleties that result in a really elegant crescent-shaped shawl.

This pattern includes instructions for a smaller (one-skein) and a larger (two-skein) version of this shawl. The cream-colored shawl in the photos is the smaller version, the grey shawl is the larger version. Note, the larger version will not use all of two skeins (I think I used about 700 yards). The instructions include both charts and written instructions, as well as the schematic in the pattern photos.


4 sts by 8 rows over 1" in stockinette

  • US size 6 circular needles
  • One or two skeins of fingering weight sock yarn (amount depends on version worked)

  • cable needle (optional)

I've been crafting since forever, knitting fanatically since about 2006 and designing since 2008. When not knitting, I teach university students about primates and play with my horses.
