The third shawl in my cabled shawl series. Start off with sweetly undulating cables that are reminiscent of ripples of water across the ocean surface. They would make a lovely shawl in and of themselves, but we don’t stop there. The waves blend and merge and become a whole new pattern to finish out with an extravagant cabling that really shows off your skills.

Adjust this shawl to your preferred size (and yarn amounts) by adding/subtracting rows of the main body cable pattern.

Gauge is not essential for this pattern.
