I wanted a soft, slightly wrinkled and effortless throw-on feel to this shawl… cables create mock rumples for a relaxed, often-worn feel, this cozy and comfortable shawl is an easy to wear triangle, and is large enough to easily double as a small throw.
Easy to knit, entirely in stockinette with a bit of effort with cables and quick short rows to shape the final end.
Construction: Shawl is knit diagonally from side to side beginning at first corner, worked in stitch to final end and then shaped with short rows before binding off.
