Okay, recently i discovered i'm not only addicted to very colorful knitting - i'm also addicted to knitting shawls. This particular one was on my list for a long time.

The pattern is from vogue knitting ~ the yarn is noro kureyon in three different colorways.
Since the five main sections all are knitted individually and joined in the final step it makes a perfect project to carry along!

Here is a closeup of one of the cable and joinings sections:


... and another one of the bobbled edging:


*** thank you for the lovely comments, gals!!! ***

Happy knitting everyone!

That's beautiful! I love the colorways that you used. Usually, I'm not a huge fan of bobbles, but they are just adorable on this shawl. I have to Wist it.  Grin

this is sooooo beautiful! I love to knit and making shawls is one of my favorite things, Ive never knitted with Noro before since its not available at any of my local craft stores but the color ways is very pretty, the shape is very cool too, do you know what issue the pattern is from? i would like to give it a try but without the cables since I can knit cables for the life of me. I voted this rocks cos it does!

Thank you! ~ *sending lots of crafty love back out to you all*  Smiley

MizzKodak, the pattern is from one of the little vogue knitting book(let)s... SHAWLS on the go! (pm me, if you can't find it on amazon or elsewhere!)
~ i think it should be possible to modify the pattern so as there is no cable in the center of the panels ~ increases are made by yarn overs to the left and right of the center stitches. all you needed there would be a rather sturdy alternative for the center stitches!
