This post is for the experienced knitters, the knitting daredevils and the beginning knitters who need some inspiration to get started. First of all, my apologies for the fact that I can't supply you with a pattern for this beauty. I knit this quite a few years ago and can't believe today that I actually was able to do such a thing given my serious lack of knitting knowledge! But I was apparently fearless, as I had fallen in love with a photo of a cabled shawl for a toddler. I decided that I could use that pattern for reference and make something for myself, and this was the result! On my daughter it looks a bit like the original design, only there are long tails in front which make it more like a triangular scarf for me.
So if you've always dreamed of knitting something special, go for it! When there's a will there's a way. And if you see that it's not going as you'd hoped, you can always un-ravel your work and use the wool for another project. You may have lost some time, but probably gained some valuable practice that will hopefully be of use for another project!Note: And if you by chance have fallen for this shawl, so print it out, and take it to your local knitting store. I'm sure they can help you figure out a pattern for this, or find something comparable. And if that doesn't work, so cut a triangular piece of fleece fabric, sew on a few cute buttons, and call it a day!
