I have had this idea of a shawl in my mind for a long time: a chevron shawl pattern knitted horizontally to play with zig-zagging bands while having fun with colors & textures.
Since the use of yarns, colors and stitch patterns is mostly improvised, I had to bring myself to write this pattern row by row!
Those who like to follow patterns verbatim will be thrilled. If you prefer visual charts reading, consider this pattern as a starting guide: once you will have started the first rows, you will quickly understand the construction and rhythm of the design so you may decide to diverge from the written instructions and use your inspiration to modify the instructions as you wish. - Louise
NEEDLES AND NOTIONS
28 sts = 10 cm; 4 inches in garter stitch after blocking.
The pattern is worked from right point to left point in two halves during which the stitches are increased at the end of RS rows (INCREASING HALF) and then decreased at the end of RS rows (DECREASING HALF).
SPECIAL THANKS to @handmade_by_anette for suggesting the name "Zigging the Zag" 😉
Can't wait to start this pattern!
Love the new pattern easy to read and will help me use up my stash. Have been looking for this design and now I have it. Thank you.
Love the free patterns
Brilliantly written pattern, 22 pages seems daunting but it was a dream to follow, easy logical steps, loved it!
