Cae Glas Shawl
Cae Glas means green field in Welsh and is the name of the town park in Oswestry, Shropshire, where I grew up. It seemed a suitable name for this substantial crescent shawl, designed using 3 green yarns from Skein Queen. Of course, you can knit it in whatever colour combination you would like, with fewer or more colours, the mixture of garter, lace and cables still looks great! See the pictures at the end of the pattern for ideas
