This pattern is published in 52 Weeks of Shawls by Laine Publishing.

Sulina takes all the best elements of a traditional Aran sweater, from undulating cables to satisfying textures of rib and double seed stitch, and turns it into a shawl instead. Worked from the back neck down, the pattern is easy to memorize once you get going, and works up fast in chunky yarn. Sulina is the name of a port city on the Black Sea in Romania, and it came from an audio book Stephanie Earp was listening while knitting. Sulina made her think about places where cultures cross the water to overlap, and that seemed fitting for the cable in this shawl.
