Elsa is a one-color shawl worked sideways in garter stitch, gradually increasing as you continue working. As you knit, an I-cord edge is formed, and cables are worked along the other edge in a ribbed sequence, making the project completely reversible! This project is perfect if you have a single skein of sport, DK, or even worsted weight yarn in your stash, and also a great way to learn the basics of cable knitting. The best part is that this project can be knit on any yarn, and to the size of your choosing. The name comes from the Ice Queen Elsa from Disney’s “Frozen”, who is known for her sassy side braid, as well as her ice powers.

MATERIALS:
• One skein (317 yards) of Shilasdair Luxury DK – Juniper
• (This project can be knit on any yarn though sport, DK, or worsted is suggested.
• US 8 32” circular needles
• Cable needle
• Split Ring Stitch Marker
• Crochet hook and spare yarn for provisional cast on.
• Tapestry Needle

GAUGE AND MEAUREMENTS:
