This was a very simple and quick pattern, so there isn’t too much to say. The directions are pretty straight forward in terms of the structure. The most difficult part is also the most striking part of the stitch texture. The “ivy stitch” is where this pattern gets its name, and it’s a really cool look! This technique involves working what are essentially spike stitches into a sort of semi-circle shape, working into different previous rows to get the desired look.
Cabled pillows are an everlasting trend, and I’ll proudly be here for it forever! It’s a timeless look that goes with any decor. You can have them in beautiful bright shades to add a pop of flair to your living room, or make a coordinating set in muted neutrals to match your bedroom! I love it for so many reasons.
This pattern is mindless because it’s just one row that you repeat for the entire length. You also don’t have a strict row count, it’s a length suggestion. So you can turn off your brain and just stitch along to a movie. The finished shawl is gorgeous and will make a wonderful conversation-starter accessory for spring evenings when heavy coats aren’t needed anymore.
