Kujaku Shawl - GENMOU Printed Pattern #04
The shawl begins at the center and is worked outwards to the border. There are two increases in every row which create a long banana-like shape. The two-color cabled border is worked sideways at the end and attached to the body by means of simple decreases and slipped stitches. The sample shawl is worked in three contrasting colors but would look equally beautiful when knit in just one.
