Designed to keep you warm in the chillest of Winter, this cozy cabled small shawl, worked in aran/worsted-weight yarn, will do just that. Ribbing unfurls from the neck, while ruffles emerging from smocked cables keep shoulders safe from the cold.

Pattern includes both charted and fully written instructions.

360yd/330m of aran or worsted weight yarn. Please note that whilst the sample used 360 yds, many people are finding they are using more than called for in the pattern (about 400 - 440 yds).
