The Flint Hill shawl combines lace, cables, and ribbing into one classic wrap for all seasons. The shawl features two different cable patterns, one small traditional cable and one larger cable with a more organic quality and eyelets that echo the delicate clover lace pattern of the body. Because of this variety of textures, this pattern works best with a smoothly spun fingering-weight yarn in either a solid- or mostly-solid colorway.
The triangular shawl is worked flat from one corner upwards in one piece. Each section of the shawl is written out and charted. To make a larger shawl, simply work more 16-row repeats as established (i.e., work more repeats of Rows 27-42 in the body) until the shawl is your desired length and then adjust the stitch count for the ribbed border accordingly.
Please note the following:
- the finished measurements will vary depending on the extent/strength of the blocking; and
