I’d like to make my mom some type of a cabled shawl for Christmas, but I’m not having any luck finding anything that really jumps out at me. I’d like to make her something beautiful of course, but I don’t know if I can handle something really super detailed with a bunch of different stitch patterns on it.
I guess I’m feeling rather uninspired right now and need some help. I looked at knittingpatterncentral.com and didn’t really see anything that jumped out at me there, either. Any ideas? I thought the dark grey shawl located on this page was REALLY pretty, but I have no idea where to find that pattern (plus, a free pattern would be better ); I suppose I could grab my Vogue Knitting book with the stitches in it and try to design it myself, but the thought of that makes me queasy! :ick:
Also, what about using a variegated yarn with cables–can it be done? Everything I’ve seen in cables is always solid yarn…I don’t want the cables to get lost in the color changes.
