Pattern Notes
This shawl is knitted flat using a variation on garter stitch to add texture. A knitted on lace and cable edging is worked at the end; this type of edging has the added bonus of also casting off stitches at the same time. The shawl is quite deep, if you wish to work a shallower shawl then omit four repeats of section 1, instead work extra repeats of sections 2 and 3.

Level of Difficulty: Intermediate, this pattern has a knitted on edging featuring a cable and lace motif
