The Tielke Shawl, named for a family of musical instrument makers, is an asymmetric triangular shawl featuring a garter stitch ground and a cable panel which flows from simple twisted cables, representing the strings of musical instruments, into a complex intertwining motif. The Tielke shawl is part of the Twisted Strings Collection
