Slip stitch cables are just magic! They look so complex as the cables weave back and forth across the garter stitch background but are easy to knit! This shawl is knit from side to side in one piece, increasing at the start and decreasing at the other side. Pick two colours that you love together for either a bright contrast or subtle change.
