Glenshee Shawl (PDF Knitting Pattern)

♫ The Music ♫
The Hills of Glenshee (the Maid of Glenshee) is a traditional ballad composed in the early 1800s and attributed to Andrew Sharpe. It tells the love story between a nobleman and a shepherdess who cares for her flock in the hills of Glenshee. Cables are such a perfect representation of the intertwining relationships in our lives.

The cable pattern is charted only.

This generously-sized, lusciously cabled crescent shawl is knit side-to-side beginning and ending with a Garter stitch edge. The left-hand edge (as worked) is a faux I-Cord edge that will form a lovely rounded finish for the top of the shawl – be sure not to pull the yarn too tightly when working these stitches. All of the increases and decreases are worked in the upper textured portion of the shawl.

The star ⭐ of this design is the mirrored cable which is flanked by a knotted cable rope on each side; the lower edge has an additional cable added. Twisted stitch and garter stitch elements within the cable panel add to the beautiful harmony of this design.
