Wrap Faux Cables
The faux cable sections will curl naturally toward the RS (the knit side).
Note: Our instructions are for working with a long length of yarn to wrap the faux cables. If you prefer, work with shorter lengths of yarn, knotting each as you finish working with it.

Beg at one end of Scarf Shawl, draw needle from WS to RS through first eyelet. *Wrap yarn around right faux cable, from WS to RS of band through the right faux cable near the same eyelet, then from RS to WS of Scarf Shawl through same eyelet, then from WS to RS up through next eyelet; rep from * to opposite end of Scarf Shawl. Rep to wrap the left faux cable, then rep to wrap right and left halves of all faux cables.

Modern Cable Shawl

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

14 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) over Traveling Cable pattern.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

4/3 LC (4 over 3 left cross) Slip 4 sts to cable needle and hold in front of work, k3, then k4 from cable needle.
3/3 LC (3 over 3 left cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front of work, k3, then k3 from cable needle.
4/3 RC (4 over 3 right cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in back of work, k4, then k3 from cable needle.
3/3 RC (3 over 3 right cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in back of work, k3, then k3 from cable needle.

yo (yarn over)
An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right needle to make a new st.

NOTES:

1. Shawl is worked in one piece in a Traveling Cable pattern with ribbing at each end.
2. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Workback and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
3. The Traveling Cable pattern can be worked by following the written instructions or by following the chart. When following the chart, read RS rows of chart from right to left and WS rows from left to right.
4. The Traveling Cable pattern works columns of eyelets (made with yarn overs) between the cables. Sts are picked up along both sides of each eyelet column for faux cables.
5. Making the eyelets with yarn overs will increase the st count on that specific row, but the st count will be reduced on the following row by working k2tog's or p2tog's.
6. Faux cables are created by working in St st (k on RS, K on RS) over picked up sts to make St st bands, then wrapping these bands at spaced intervals.

Modern Cable Shawl Reviewed by Pamela Blatzheim on 2014-01-12 *
I thought this shawl was beautiful and I a was anxious to knit it. After several tries, I gave up as the directions were not clear, at least for me. I put the stitch marker on as suggested for the repeats on the first but when I knit the next row the marker was in the wrong place.
