Notes on reading the cable charts
the cable panel increases in stitch count as it is worked, and then decreases again. it starts with 38 stitches and increases from there. disregard the grey boxes as they are non-stitches that the panel increases into. choose to follow either the chart or the written instructions; if the chart is confusing, use the written instructions only.
this shrug is knit flat and seamed to create armholes.
