The curved shape of Silvanus will hug your neck with garter stitch and a reversible zig-zag cable border!
This curved shawl starts with easy short rows. Then a few rows are worked over all stitches. Finally, the border is knitted on sideways. The zig-zag cables border takes some time to knit, but is well worth the effort and makes the shawl reversible!
And if you like lace, there is now another option for the edge: the lace ribbons edge!
Both edges have charts as well as written instructions.
This pattern has been tested (version 1)!
