This is the second design in the Celtic Cable Shawls collection.

A sideways shawl designed to work beautifully with hand-dyed sock yarn. The edging is worked in elegant twisted stitch cables on a garter stitch background, complemented by clean eyelet lines around the edges.

The edging is eased around the point of the triangle with some carefully placed short rows, which enhance the cable pattern without interrupting it.
