Meet Caridwen!

Caridwen is an Aran Lace wrap, written in two sizes — a scarf featuring the main cable and side cables, and a stole featuring additional secondary cables.

The entire stitch pattern is both charted and written out line by line for each version (scarf or stole).

Cabling, increases, decreases. Both charts and line by line instructions are included.

The Sand Ripples Shawl features a lovely bi-colored cable pattern, complementary lace edging, and short-rowed garter stitch body.

I love this one! I’ve sent it off to Anzula for their trunk shows (which means you all may get the chance to see it and try it on!) but this is one I’d love to keep and snuggle up in. The Anzula Cloud yarn is so luscious.

The edging, worked as a combination of stranding (for the cables) and intarsia (for the lace), is worked first.

Stitches are picked up along the edge for the short-rowed body. The body is in garter stitch, so once you’re picked up the stitches along the edge it turns into TV knitting.
