Slowly the sun rises and the weather warms, germinating an idea, sprouting new growths that will be both calm and complex as they tell a story with nature’s forms.

In the opening chapter of this pattern, delicate growths quickly bloom, effortlessly, cables without a cable needle. Their easy-to-memorize pattern is a soothing rhythm that forms the main landscape of the shawl’s body; a pattern that appears complex yet is an easy repeat that quickly grows. But then, the pattern intensifies, as these growths fade and develop with twisting cables and lace into a pattern of outstretched leaves that define the border of the shawl. And finally, just as the afternoon daylight and fading sun of the harvest announces the last chapter of the story, the pattern calms again, into an easy rhythm of ribbing and decreasing leaves that stretch out their points.

Aghamora is a cable and lace, crescent-shaped shawl worked from the top-down through the border. Includes both charted and written instructions. US and metric measurements.

The finished size of your shawl is easily adjustable, by working additional repeats as noted in the pattern.
