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!

I founded Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a single space to hold as much of the textile awesomeness that I could find in and around Vancouver. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events, pattern releases as well as Community Highlights.
Do you have an event, KAL, yarn or pattern release, launch or other thing you want us to post? Just fill out the form at the top of this page, or send your press release to me at
