Collect a colorful array of yarns to knit this easy garter stitch chevron shawl. Start with a small cast on and watch as the fabric gradually grows into an expansive wingspan. The sideways construction drapes beautifully and provides a large canvas for you to play with stripes and color pops. Four skeins of yarn will yield the large shape, but use as many colors as you like to create a vibrantly striped landscape.

Color Note This pattern is written using MC & CC for staggerd two row stripes throughout the entire project, as shown in the Gray/Blue sample. If you prefer to knit a solid version with occasional accent stripes, as in the Light Gray Color Pop sample, follow the pattern as written and create your own colorful striping sequence.
