Hediye is a snuggly cabled shawl with a gently curved edging and triangular center. The edging is worked first, and then stitches for the center are picked up along one of the long edges and decreased towards the top. The cable patterns on the edging would be an excellent introduction to cabling and a good place to practice cabling without a cable needle. No crossings involve more than a total of 4 stitches and the pattern is intuitive to follow. Short rows are worked into each repeat so that the outer edge is longer.
