Cables are for Lovers

This pattern is available on Ravelry.

By Susan Sheby

This knit-from-the-center crescent shawl has a little something for everyone with its mixture of Knit Collage yarns and cables and pointelle stitch patterns. The cables add texture while the pointelle stitches keep things light and breezy, making this the perfect shawl to keep you cozy, but not too hot! This is a perfect project to try if you’ve never experimented with our yarns before because in our mini skein sampler kits, you get to try out five yarns in one go. It’s a lot of fun to knit with and mix such unique yarns together!
