LOVELY RITA is a rounded bottom, sideways worked, lace and cabled (easy cables) full sized shawl worked all in one piece.

This pattern is written in complete line by line text as well as complete line by line charts so you can chose to work in whichever format is most comfortable for you! There will also be a free on-line video on cabling without a cable needle for this particular pattern as it is a perfect project to learn this technique.
