Stalwart Shawl pattern

I am almost finished knitting the shawl, and it is a simple pattern to follow. It is turning out wonderful!

Donna Wills
Can’t wait to make!

Easy to follow pattern. Looks squishy and soft.

Becky Mentzer
Cables so fun!

I loved creating the knitted shawl with cables along one edge. It was an easy-to-follow pattern and a quick knit. I loved it! Will definitely knit this pattern again.

Debbie Meagher
Not Really Sure

I keep starting this pattern and I enjoy the lace and beads, but I am afraid to go on because I can't see in the pattern where it will change into a shawl, if I keep going. Just wanted to make sure I have the whole pattern. (4 pages including pictures). Waiting for a confirmation.

On my to do list

On my to do after the holidays. Love the look. Thanks so much for the pattern.
