Ganz is available in knitCompanion.

Ganz is a slightly asymmetrical triangular shawl that begins with a cable and gansey panel. Stitches are picked up on the long side of the panel to work the stockinette stitch body. Easy two over two cables can be worked without a cable needle. Once the panel is done, the rest of the shawl is fairly mindless knitting.

Ganz is not for a rank beginner, but if you can knit and purl, cable and pick up stitches along a slipped stitch edge, this will be easy for you.

Please note that a solid colored yarn will show the gansey panel to its best advantage. Ganz is pictured here in the colors Plunge and Winter Wheat. Plunge is a gorgeous blue and a difficult color to photograph. The first picture represents the color most accurately.
