Sand Ripples Shawl
This shawl features a lovely bi-colored cable pattern, complementary lace edging, and short-rowed garter stitch body. The edging, worked as a combination of stranding (for the cables) and intarsia (for the lace), is worked first. Stitches are picked up along the edge for the short-rowed body.
