Deirdre Shawl



Ágnes Kutas-Keresztes

The border of the Deirdre Shawl is worked from side to side—the cables change direction in the center and form a diamond shape. Stitches are then picked up from the long edge, and the body is shaped with short-rows. I-cord edges along both ends add a finishing touch.

Yarn Manos del Uruguay Clara (100% superwash merino wool; 385 yd [350 m]/3½ oz [100 g]): #10 azafrán, 2 skeins. Yarn distributed by Fairmount Fibers.

Needles Sizes 2½ (3 mm) and 6 (4 mm): 40″ circular (cir). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions Cable needle (cn); tapestry needle.

Gauge 16 sts and 30 rows = 4″ in St st on larger needle.
