This pattern was designed using two of my favorite things, simple garter stitch
(for texture) and cables (for direction and visual interest).
Another favorite part of the shawl is that it is all one piece! There are no seams to finish, or stitches to pick up. Simply by increasing at the end of a row (RS) and at the beginning of the following row, the Garter Stitch evolves.

Since the majority of the shawl is Garter Stitch it will knit up fairly quickly.
Hopefully, the cables will not deter you from creating this beautiful shawl. If you know how to knit and purl, you can cable! Please feel free to contact me if you need help.

The yarn I chose was made from bamboo/silk so it has a beautiful drape, but there are many other yarn options.

The dimensions are 39” (rib edge) x 41” (cable border) x 57. The size can be increased by doing additional 16 row cable repeats.
