I'm in the process of doing xmas gifts, and I've been working on my double yarn technique - loving it! I have the base yarn for my best friend's all bought and ready (lion brand jiffy in san diego - she's a pink kinda girl) So I want to find a nice soft yarn with a good drape that will let me do a simple cable, which brings me to my question - does anyone know of a SIMPLE pattern for a cabled shawl/wrap? I have in my head what I want it to look like, but I'm still a newbie so I'm afraid to venture out on my own. Thanks!

Here (http://caron.com/projects/shadows/sss_cable_wrap.html) is a cabled shawl that looks like it would be pretty easy to make.

I'm sure there are loads of others out there, too, but I thought of this one right away because I saw this leaflet when I was out yesterday. :wink:
