Durango Shawl is a beautifully textured triangular-shaped shawl that features a beautiful cable pattern that follows the shape of the shawl and transitions smoothly into the wide ribbed border. The edge-to-edge cables are framed by an i-cord edging that’s knit as you go.
Designer Irina Anikeeva ‘wanted something soft, warm, and luxurious’ to knit her design in. After browsing the shelves of her local yarn store, she found our Cumbria Fingering yarn and chose it because of the soft blend of fibres, deep rich colours, and how it allows cables to be seen very vividly.
