Hediye

Two colour cabled shawlette

A snuggly cabled shawl with a gently curved edging and triangular centre.

  • CONSTRUCTION

    The edging is worked first, and then stitches for the centre are picked up along one of the long edges and decreased towards the top. The cable patterns on the edging would be an excellent introduction to cabling and a good place to practice cabling without a cable needle. No crossings involve more than a total of 4 stitches and the pattern is intuitive to follow. Short rows are worked into each repeat so that the outer edge is longer.
