Saraya is a half-pi shawl construction that starts with a garter tab. The distinct sections allowing you to explore different textures. Beginning with nupps on a stockinette background, and then moving to a wider section of fluttery shadow cables. The highlight of the shawl is a deep panel of juicy cables with a dash of garter lace for a final flourish. While some attention is needed to work the action rows, there are plenty of relief rows to please any intermediate knitter.
