The Chevron Shawl pattern is finally ready for it's debut! Remember this project from January 2006?
Handspun and handknit, I really enjoyed making it. I wear it quite a bit, and love it. Lacy enough to be pretty, sturdy enough to be practical. I finally got around to doing the final edits on the writeup, and am pleased (and a little scared) to offer my first pattern for sale.
It requires 950 yards of sportweight yarn (about 15 wpi) and is knit on US5 needles. I used handspun, but any DK to sportweight yarn that gives about 5 stitches and 7 rows to the inch would work fine since fit is not much of an issue with a shawl. This is a fairly straightforward pattern, and I think it would be a good introduction to lacy knitting. Techniques used include reading a chart, provisional cast-on, knit-on edging and i-cord. After blocking, it measures 80" x 40".
