This was 2015’s Mystery Knit Along shawl. Choose three colors to knit this playful shawl. Begin with Westknits shortcut rows and increase to built the striped section. Continue with a contrasting color to knit a large cable that grows across the edge. Pick up stitches in a third color to knit the wavy border. Choose between a simple I-cord bind off or add decorative picot clusters for an embellished edge.

Take time to check gauge. It does not have to be exact as long as you like the drape of your fabric. I recommend a fabric that has movement without the stitches looking too loose or sloppy. If you have a gauge like 18 or 20 sts = 4” / 10cm then you may need a bit more than the requested yardage.
