The VINDEL shawl is worked sideways from one point to the other. The shawl features garter stitch and cables and in the middle section German short rows.

The pattern comes with a chart that will help you keep track of the number of rows in your knitting and will make sure that this is a relaxing and enjoyable knit.

The shawl in the photos is knitted in Thybo Pelsuld, 400 m per 100 g but you can use any other fingering weight yarn. You will need approximately 760 m / 830 yards total.
