This shawl’s rich vibrant color and ripples of cables echo the ancient Celtic sacred spaces for which it is named. Starting with a garter tip before moving on to the cable section, the piece is very simple to knit, yet the subtle cable texture is truly divine to our eyes. We recommend choosing a color that shows off the texture of this shawl.

Note
The shawl features an unusual arrow‒like construction. At first the shawl body is shaped with increases in every row and a central decrease on RS rows. Once you reach the middle of the shawl, each RS row still contains the first increase and central decrease, however each WS row ends with an increase, thus maintaining the total number of stitches.
The first part of the shawl is worked in Garter stitch, then the second part is worked in a simple yet effective cable pattern.
