A top-down triangular shawl inspired by beautiful Celtic knot-work, and worked in hand-dyed fingering weight/4-ply yarn. The intricate edging features twisted rib and eyelets. Two sizes are given, but the size of the shawl can be increased if you have extra yarn (the sample shown in the photographs is in the larger size).

Please note that the cables are worked on a background of reverse garter stitch, which makes for a lot of purling. Some of the cables are worked on the WS, so this pattern requires some concentration to complete.

  • Complex closed-loop cabling (all cable stitches are fully explained, and a video demonstrating some of the techniques can be found here:
