Knit in lovely, lightweight yarn from Marianated Yarns, the Kacia Shawl features a cabled central panel with simple garter stitch on either side. The cables take on an entirely different look when seen upside down, and the garter stitch is wonderful for showing off the nuances of color in a hand-dyed yarn! Most of the cables can be easily worked without a cable needle, and Kacia can be combined with any of the other pieces in The Virescent Collection to create a coordinating set.

This pattern contains both fully charted and written instructions.
