Ribbonwood is a triangular shawl featuring my favourite cabled-lace motif. One iteration of this motif advances down each half of the shawl, then grows into three, and finally expands into a deep cabled lace border. I devised a decorative central spine motif which disguises the usual yarn-over spine found in a triangular shawl. This motif results in the equivalent of two stitch increases per row.
This little flower-like motif is picked up again at the very edge of the shawl and ties everything together in a cabled-lace extravaganza.
