Swans Island Cable Wrap PDF
The clever closure design is what sets this style apart from other shawls and scarves. The fabric is constructed mainly of simple ribbing with one ribbed cable placed in the center to add an element of stitch interest. Two slits worked on either side of the cable at the narrowest point in the wrap allow the wearer to simply tuck one end of the wrap under the cable to keep everything firmly in place. More sophisticated than tying a knot and more convenient than adding a shawl pin this clever detail makes the Cable Wrap unique.
