In the Designer's Words: "This project is perfect for a novice shawl knitter because it is predominantly garter stitch and will not require much blocking to keep the fabric flat and even. The mirrored, plaited cables on the spine keep the shawl interesting and add a unique touch to the simple, ridged fabric.
Skills Used: Basic knitting skills: cast on, knit, purl, bind off
Knitting in rows: Increasing (kfb and yo)
Cables (C4B and C4F, with written instructions in the pattern)"
