The concept of Knitworthiness has received welcome attention recently from designers such as Ysolda Teague and podcasters such as Louise Scollay aka Knit British. In essence it is about valuing the time, skills and materials that go into your knitting. As Ysolda says, 'life’s too short to knit for anyone who doesn’t love what you make'. 

So, if autumn brings, for you, the idea of gift making, here is the third in a series of workshops that combines an opportunity to make a beautiful gift for someone who will truly appreciate it, whilst at the same time learning some interesting new techniques that will add to your repertoire of skills.

This simple shawl features a fun cable design that uses Barbara Walker’s closed ring cable technique to work the cables as a horizontal panel. The shawl is worked bottom up with a garter stitch border followed by the cable panel. Short rows are then worked to shape the centre in a shallow curve. The straight top edge is finished by continuing the garter and slipped stitch edging set up at the beginning. Each side is worked into the centre, decreasing across the remaining live sts and the ends are kitchener stitched together for a neat finish at the centre top.
