This shawl features a bi-color cable pattern, complementary lace edging, and short-rowed garter stitch body. The edging panel, worked as a combination of stranding (for the cables) and intarsia (for the lace), is worked first. Stitches are picked up along the edge of the panel for the short-rowed body. The cable and lace pattern is given in chart form only.
