This striking shawl pattern uses “Cascade’s cloud” to create a warm, soft garment. Using reverse stocking stitch, it produces a plaid effect fabric. The pattern requires you to use the intarsia method, pick up stitches for the borders and sow a running stitch the full length of the shawl, over the intarsia seams.
