Here is the Cabled Shawl pattern as promised. This shawl is great as a cushy scarf too and can be worn in many different ways with or without a shawl pin. Often, instead of putting my arm through the arm hole I wrap the shawl around my neck or shoulders and put the other end of the scarf through it. It's a fabulous piece!
One sad note is that the yarn I used (Garnstudio DROPS Highlander) seems to be discontinued, so I'm on the prowl for a good replacement yarn to suggest. Any ideas?
here's the link to the free pattern : http://www.jannamaria.com/free-patterns.html
It's free until March 15th so tell all your friends to download it before then. Enjoy!

Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the owner and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn. I am also a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I founded Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a single space to hold all the textile awesomeness Vancouver (and beyond) offers. In 2010 I moved away from BC and was (a bit) absent here until I returned in 2016. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events and other local artists and crafters.
