Redwood by Kirsten Kapur is the perfect accessory for all-season cable lovers. Watch your cables grow like roots from the corner to the squishy welted border. This gorgeous shawl is worked from the three-stitch cast on and features striking cables that naturally grow from the ribbing.
The cable motifs are worked from charts. The shawl is finished with 70s-style tassels.
