ARDENT AUTUMNshawl

With the onset of October at the latest it is time for warm colors, long walks among colorful leaves, hot cocoa, candles and cozy evenings. ARDENT AUTUMN was designed to accompany you during this season, to keep you warm and to bring color into the darker and shorter days.

This triangular shawl is worked from the top down. Its simple but intriguing cable pattern is fun to knit and easy to wear. ARDENT AUTUMN is a perfect project to learn how to cable for beginner knitters and a enjoyable, mindless knit for the advanced knitter.
