Soft River


Soft River is a lightweight, reversible shawl that is as soothing to knit as it is to wear. Made with calming stockinette and simple garter stitch cables, this is a lovely spring accessory. Knit the shawl in a lightweight yarn and luxurious fiber composition for the perfect drape.

Soft River can be worn either with the stockinette or the reverse stockinette side showing; the garter stitch cables look the same either way. The pattern comes in two sizes along with easy-to-follow instructions for adjusting the size of the shawl as needed. The smaller size will make the perfect accessory shawl for warmer months. The larger size will keep you wrapped in warmth throughout the year.

This pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Only written instructions are provided for the cable pattern.
