Brioche and cables: briochables? briocables?

The cabled border runs along one side of this shawl, extending out into a tuck stitch body. The way the intricate cable anchors the pattern brought to mind a cantilever, which is a rigid structural element that extends horizontally and is supported at only one end. I find cantilevers particularly fascinating when they are used in bridges.

The pattern includes both written instructions and charts. Detailed descriptions and a photo tutorial of the more unusual stitches are also included.

Materials:• Fingering weight yarn in two colours, MC and CC, approximately 400m (437yds) of the MC and 360 (394yds) of the CC. • 4mm/US 6 circular needle with an 80cm/32” or longer cable. • Tapestry needle to weave in ends. • Two cable needles or locking stitch markers to hold one or two stitches.

**Size of finished shawl:**Length 108cm/43”, width 122cm/48”, relaxed after blocking.
