Mossy Cables by La Visch Designs | Mossy Cables is a cozy triangular shawl knit sideways, with an eye-catching cable panel. The squishy garter stitch makes it perfect to hide away in, when it’s cold outside. While I made my version in a DK weight yarn, it’s very easy to customize to other weights and quantities of yarn. Just knit in pattern until your shawl has the desired size, or when you run out of yarn! The pattern contains both fully written out as well as charted instructions for the cable panel.
Gauge: Mossy Cables is written for a gauge of approx. 10.5 sts / 20 rows = 10 cm (4 inches) over garter stitch, measured after blocking. Gauge is however not critical in this design.
Finished Measurements: Finished dimensions of the sample shawl: span width of 180 cm (71 inches) along the upper edge and a depth of 78 cm (30 ¾ inches), measured after blocking. Change the size of the shawl by using heavier or lighter weight yarn and/or working fewer (or more) repeats of the body, the border, or both. This will, of course, change the amount of yarn needed.
Materials Used: Yarn: Sandnes Garn Tynn merinoull (100% Merino; 175 m (191 yds) / 50 g) in the following colors and amounts: MC: 525 m (573 yds) / 150 g in 2564 Caramel, and CC: 175 m (191 yds) / 50 g in 6562 Petrol. Substitute any wool fingering or sport weight yarn in colors with sufficient contrast for a similar result.
Needle Size: 4.5 mm (US 7) / 80 cm (32 inches) circular needles were used for the sample shawl. Choose a needle size appropriate for the yarn selected.
