The Inis Mór Shawl is the sister pattern to the Inis Mór Toque, and part of the CableStar Volume 1: Galway Bay collection. You can purchase the eBook containing 6 patterns and 19 tutorials, or the pattern individually.

The Inis Mór Shawl (pronounced “inish-more”) is named after the largest of the Aran Islands, and features a big, bold cable flanked with braids and texture.

The main body of the shawl is knit first from top to bottom, then afterwards the cabled bordered is knitted on seamlessly using a join technique and mitered corners to create a continuous flowing cable around the main body.

The pattern includes instructions for the join and wrap & turn short rows, while the eBook contains photo tutorials of the techniques.

Techniques used:

  • Cable knitting

  • Reading charts

  • Joining while knitting

  • Wrap & turn short rows

  • Provisional cast on

  • Kitchener stitch/grafting
