Dohne (do-knee).

Wrap yourself in this warm and cozy shawl and feel hugged by the Dohne sheep.

Dohne is worked flat from the right tip to the left edge with a built-in I-cord edge. Although it looks like cables, there is not one cable involved in the textured stitch pattern.

There are 2 versions of this shawl: texture & garter and texture only. The texture is quite addictive and you won’t be the only one feeling a little sad when binding off.

The pattern is fully written and charted row by row until the first repeat of adding garter stitches to the shawl is done.
