This large, cozy shawl knits up quickly in a lofty, heavy worsted weight yarn like Lorna’s Laces Masham Worsted. There are simple broken cables throughout the piece, which adds texture, without too much structure, and really allows the variegated yarn to take center stage! The cables begin farther apart at the top of the shawl, and then get gradually closer together as you move down, which adds just a bit of interest to what is otherwise a simple triangular shawl. It is large and super warm, making this a perfect outdoor accessory for those cold winter days!

Arisaid is shown knit in the color way Sandy Goes to Scotland. If you purchase the Arisaid kit from Jimmy Beans wool, you get the pattern for half price, and the proceeds of the kit are also donated to Cast of Chemo!
