Jay Unger’s beautiful lament "Ashokan Farewell" inspired this shawl ~ a loving knit to wrap oneself in for comfort. The leaves of the Catskill forests, the intertwining bonds of friendship and the coming together and moving apart that are an integral part of our lives are all reflected in this cable and lace creation.
Ashokan, the fourth design in the Celtic Shawl Series, is a gently arc-shaped shawl incorporating lace and cable stitches.
Decreases in the initial rows form the bottom edge into 12 points.
The top edge of the shawl is finished using an I-cord bind off which provides a lovely finish with a firm edge.
