  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    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.

    The size is easy to customize by knitting more stripes for a larger shawl or simply binding off early for a smaller size.

    US 4 / 3.5mm circular in 40″ / 100cm length or size needed to obtain gauge

    6 stitch markers, tapestry needle

    24 sts & 52 rows = 4″ / 10cm in garter stitch before blocking.

    Try to get close to the recommended stitch gauge to ensure you don’t run out of yarn. A similar stitch gauge is more important than getting an exact row gauge.
