A beautiful cable motif decorates the body and transitions into a wide ribbed border on this elegant and eye-catching triangular shawl.

Worked sideways from one tip to the opposite edge makes it fun to knit and easy to wear.

This pattern is an engaging knit with a beautiful result. The finished shawl will soon become a favourite cosy item in your daily winter wardrobe.

It provides fully written row-by-row as well as charted instructions so you can choose which you prefer to work from.

I hope you enjoy the pattern!
