This is a triangular shaped shawl, worked in one piece, from the top down. Casting on requires using the garter tab cast on method, for which I have provided a tutorial link.

Instructions for this shawl are provided in both written and charted format. The chart is easy to read and ideal for knitters who haven’t followed a chart before.

This shawl is perfect for beginners to both shawl and cable knitting.
The design for this shawl was inspired by my Skoosh! and Old Shale Shawls. After completing both of these shawls, I wanted to design a third shawl that would include a little bit of cable pattern. The thought of knitting cables can be slightly daunting to most new knitters, but this is a very straightforward cable pattern to follow: the cables only appear once in every eight rows. In between the cables, there is a little twisted lace pattern too.
I’m hoping to help knitters understand how triangular shawls develop with this very simple yet elegant shawl pattern, which I’ve made available for free.
