  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Knit this luscious cabled shawl using DK or Worsted weight yarn. Honeycomb cables fill the body of the shawl accompanied by wide ribbed edges. The middle section is worked in stockinette stitch with meandering cables. Use colorful stripes whenever you like to add a touch of playfulness with the traditional cables. A two-color brioche border frames the fabric with a graphic bang!
