This asymmetrically shaped chevron shawl is inspired by the beginning of the Twists & Turns shawl. Simple stitches with increases and decreases form the expanding chevron shapes. The loops are achieved by casting on extra stitches and binding them off later. They create a really fun textured loop feature that echoes the chevron “v” shapes. Customize this fingering weight shawl by knitting as many stripes as you like. The pattern includes instructions for a small and large size. Use two colors striped together or choose one main color and lots of leftover contrast color pops for a fun stashbusting version.
