A beautiful cable leaf motif creates a wide border that starts at the tip and flows into the ribbed border on this elegant triangular shawl.

Floating Leaves is worked as a triangular, sideways knit shawl with the wonderful cable motif along a garter stitch body, which makes it a fun and engaging knit.
The beautiful finished shawl will add an elegant but easy-to-wear, and super cosy item to your daily wardrobe.

Fully written as well as charted instructions are provided so you can choose which you prefer to work from.

I hope you enjoy the pattern!
