The Colmena Shawl is a fun and fast growing pattern with a surprisingly easy to memorize cable stitch, worked flat and sideways from one tip to the other. This pattern is a collaboration with Miss Babs Yarns and call for their delicious Big Silk base. Squishy, cozy and big, this shawl is perfect to wrap yourself in when the temperatures start to drop.
