Lost kingdom: celtic love song shawl
The beautifully lilting tunes of Portuguese composer BrunuhVille spring to life and share their story in this richly cabled shawl. Intricate melodies and harmonies translate into intertwining cables in the "Celtic Love Song" shawl.
This rectangular shawl is knit flat using a circular needle. It begins with an I-Cord Cast On. The first row is a Wrong Side setup row where stitches are increased to accommodate the horizontal pull of the cable stitches that follow. The side edges are worked in a ribbed cable that creates a beautiful wreathed edge. The main shawl ends with an I-Cord Bind Off.
The End Panels (optional) are knit on after the main shawl is complete; they are worked at right angles to the shawl. Stitches are picked up along the I-Cord shawl ends and additional stitches are cast on using an I-Cord Cast On. The End Panels have a mock I-Cord edge and finish with an I-Cord Bind Off. A few stitches need to be sewn to attach the final bind off stitches to the shawl.
