This is the fifth design in the Celtic Cable Shawls collection.
The construction of this lace-weight shawl is rather complex and unusual. The shawl begins with the centre square, worked outwards in the round. Then, two of the edges around the square are filled in with short rows, and the body is worked in stocking stitch, finished with lace ribbing. After this, the other two edges of the square are filled in and rest of the shawl is worked exactly as the other side.
Width: 17"/(43 cm)
Length: 55"/(140 cm)
