The Gwindra Shawl is a large, crescent-shaped accessory in one size. The body of the shawl is worked in a modified Garter Stitch pattern, and the Applied Border has a lace and cable design. Though the sample uses just one stripe of contrasting colour, there are many possibilities for adding more stripes, or knitting the edging in the contrast colour if desired.
