Golden Hazel is a lovely autumnal shawl featuring my favourite design elements: leaves, lace and cables. Some experience in lace and cable knitting is required, however, the pattern contains basic lace and cable stitches only and looks more intricate than it really is. WS rows are always purled.
Charted and written-out instructions.
