Ceridwen (pronounced ker-ID-wen) is the crone aspect of the Celtic triple goddess and she is associated with change and rebirth. To reflect the shape of her magical cauldren and the intricacy of Celtic knotwork, I designed a semi circular shawl in two cabled patterns. Cabled panels frame the main cabled sections & it is finished with an i-cord edging. It would be suitable for an experienced knitter used to cabled knitting.

Adjustable by working a different number of repeats.
