Garter Tab Cast on is missing - Rotate your work 90 degrees clockwise and pick up 2 sts, rotate your work 90 degrees pickup and knit 3 cast on sts.


An Elegant Twist is a contemporary shawl that adds a little bit of loveliness to drape around your shoulders.

Worked top-down this crescent-shaped shawl starts with a classic squishy garter stitch body then transitioning into a luscious and beautifully textured cable edge.

Knit it in a subtle solid and let the texture speak for itself, or choose two colors to create a striking accessory.

A super simple 4-stitch cable pattern is great for beginners and included are instructions for easy mini-cables that can be knit without a cable needle.


Yarn: Emma’s Yarn Simply Spectacular DK (75% Superwash Merino/25% Nylon Colorway: Whisper (255 yards/100grams)
3 skeins - 765 yards

Needles: US 6/4mm 32” circular needles and any 7/4.5mm for bind off

Notions: Cable Needle, Stitch Marker, T-pins and flexible blocking wires for blocking

Gauge: 16 stitches = 4 inches in Garter Stitch after blocking.

Although gauge is not crucial for this project, it will affect the finished size and yarn requirements. A looser gauge will result in the use of more yarn.

Finished size: 18” deep by 75” long
