Anisah is a contemporary shawl featuring a textured cable and lace panel surrounded by classic garter stitch. The asymmetrical triangular shaping begins with just a few stitches which then flow into a wide panel composed of a graceful cable flanked by mesh lace. While that panel forms the left edge of the shawl, the remainder of the body is filled with squishy garter goodness. The combination of lace, cables, reverse stockinette and garter stitch knitted in worsted weight makes the texture of all the various design elements really pop.

I love to design shawls which are especially appropriate for social knitting. Anisah has no pattern repeats, has a simple 8-row chart repeat, and once you get past the early charts which set up the wide panel and body, you’ll have everything memorized in no time. I named the shawl Anisah—which is an Arabic name meaning “good friend”—as a nod to the wonderful friendships that result from knitters bonding over a shared love of our craft.

Anisah is also an excellent pattern for adventuresome beginners to try their hand at simple lace, cables and triangular shaping. Plus it’s a fun and fast knit for more experienced knitters looking for a relaxing TV knit. Worked in worsted weight, it knits up in no time even at the generous pattern size. So you still have time to knock one out for warm and snuggly holiday gifting this year!
