A snuggly cabled shawl with a gently curved edging and triangular centre. The edging is worked first, and then stitches for the centre are picked up along one of the long edges and decreased towards the top. The cable patterns on the edging would be an excellent introduction to cabling and a good place to practice cabling without a cable needle. No crossings involve more than a total of 4 stitches and the pattern is intuitive to follow. Short rows are worked into each repeat so that the outer edge is longer.

Hediye is shown in two colours but would be equally beautiful in a single colour or get creative and play with stripes or colour blocking in the centre triangle.

Double knitting or light worsted weight yarn with good stitch definition. Shown in Madelinetosh Tosh DK (100% superwash merino wool, 225 yds / 205m). Edging colour: Bark and centre colour: Opaline.

Edging colour: 340 yds / 310m
