Llawenydd is worked from the ribbed shortest edge and decreased on one side down to the narrowest tip. The two by two ribbing flows into a bold, double cable pattern surrounding diamonds of richly textured moss stitch. The body of the shawl is stockinette based, sparsely dotted with cable crosses that echo the border pattern. The edges continue the initial ribbing and are neatly decreased together at the tip. These cables are perfect for working without a cable needle, which I highly recommend for a more efficient project.
The shawl is a decent size for wearing over the shoulders or tucked around the neck bandana style. Really big projects don’t exactly fit the scope of Knitworthy, but if you have some time and yarn on your hands this would be stunning scaled up.
