The Celtic Coast Shawl was created because I wanted to keep the knitter’s interest from start to finish! I wanted to make sure there were different textures throughout, so this pattern has been broken down into 4 main sections:
There are double garter borders between each section and cabling along the outer edges and down the spine. The shawl is finished off with a nice, rolled, I-cord bind-off.
There is a large garter-tab cast-on that has a final stitch count of 37.
You will need to have at least 4 stitch markers and 1 cable needle.
There are links to YouTube videos and tutorials for any require skill needed to complete this project. Even though this is for a more advanced knitters, I want to make sure that I had the resources available for anyone wanting to learn something new!
The pattern can be made with a single solid color throughout, or you can use the instructions for the 3 color OR 5 color fade options.
