Partner to the Burnaby hat, this timeless triangle of cozy cables and textured stitches is a satisfying knit. Worked from the trailing edge upward, the shawl will seem to go faster and faster, and straightforward design makes it a good project to knit with company or while settled in with a favorite movie. Wide bands of garter stitch, simple cables, and seeded tree forms inspired by fishermen’s ganseys look sophisticated in a neutral tinged with color like Gale (shown), Thaw, or Morandi.


The shawl is worked from the bottom up, beginning with the garter stitch border and worked towards the center top.
