Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 14: Refresh celebrates the transition, the welcome moment when we see where we’ve been and look forward to what lies ahead.

Carol Feller’s love of cables and textures is front and center in this long triangular wrap that easily stays put on the shoulders.

If you’re new to cables, this is a good place to start. The shaping is minimal—all that action happens at the edges—leaving the body open for the uninterrupted twining of the stitches.

Materials
— Nua by Stolen Stitches [50 g hanks, each approx 153 yds (140 m), 60% merino wool/20% yak/20% linen]; 9 hanks Rolling Bales or Bare Necessities
— Size US 6 (4 mm) circular needle, 32” (80 cm) long or longer, or size needed to achieve gauge

Notes
— This shawl is worked from narrow to wide end, with all increases worked along right edge. After you work Cable Segment 1, you’ll have one Cable Block; the Cable Block consists of Twisted Cable, Diagonal Cable, Twisted Cable, then Padded Cable.
— To each Section of each successive Cable Segment, add one element of a new Cable Block until at the end of Section D of each Cable Segment, you’ll have added an entire Cable Block.
— Slip all stitches purlwise, slipping with yarn to back on RS rows and with yarn to front on WS rows.
