Leethal Knits - Freewheelin'

Availability: Translation missing: en.general.icons.icon_check_circle icon 9 in stock

This pattern is for any weight yarn! This cabled shawl design is worked outwards, starting at the top center, with increases bringing it out into a curved U-shape, and can be worked either until it’s just the size you want, or until you run out of yarn. The bind-off can come at any row, and can be worked in a different colored yarn, both for a contrasting edge design feature, and to help every last bit of yarn get used up.

The design is made up of 16-row repeating cable patterns, most with increases involved, which twist in and out of each other as the shawl grows. Keep track of these cable segments with color coded stitch markers for easy pattern following!

A solid color yarn is recommended, to best show off the cables, and any weight from around DK (for a small shawl) up to super bulky will work, for very different finished items. Use a bulky yarn for a big, cozy, squishy winter accessory to bundle up in; use a worsted or finer weight for a more intricate looking impressive piece of cablework, which will still be plenty squishy and warm! In worsted, the largest your shawl can get is about 40-50 inches / 100-125 cm wide, so use a heavier weight for a larger piece.
