Mock me shawl, pattern
This easy to create crescent shaped shawl is mostly knitted in Garter stitch, top down with an ever increasing and interesting lacy appearing edge. The bottom border is done in a mock cable pattern, hence the name. It is very easy to do and without a cable needle! Everyone will think you cabled the beautiful border~
A perfect fool the eye project…
Hopefully you will enjoy your shawl as much as I am enjoying mine!
The blocked measurements are: 89” in total span along border and 15” in height.
