Storm Warning is a triangular shaped sideways shawl. It has a plaited cable and delicate lace border with optional beading, a garter stitch body and an eyelet edging.

This shawl is perfect for showing off those special one of a kind skeins to the best advantage. The size of the shawl is easily adjustable depending on the amount of yarn you have.

The pattern includes both charts and written instructions as well as a photo tutorial for beading, so however you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted.
