Banrion is a triangular shawl featuring a ribbed cable motif, on a two-colour garter stitch background. The pattern begins by casting on just a few stitches, working in garter stitch stripes, and increasing the stitch count as the shawl progresses. The cables are introduced gradually as the shawl grows wider.

The ribbed cable motifs are a modern reinterpretation of classic cables, usually associated with warm & structured cabled aran sweaters. The combination of slipped stitches and ribbing creates a soft fabric suitable for a draping shawl.
