Cozy up in this fun cabled knit worked all in one piece!

The shawl starts at the back hem, increasing to its full-width just below the shoulders, the stitches are then slipped to hold while the fronts are worked down to the hem. You’ll be working cables and moss-stitch with garter edges to make this immense amount of knitting a real blast. The hood is knit from the live back-neck sts and then a final edge is worked.

This design is geared toward experienced knitters with row-by-row and charted directions. Done using about 1500 yards of worsted weight pure wool, the cape is closed using a fun shawl-pin tucked into the yo’s used for increasing the fronts.
