This pattern will be offered for $4 thru July 4, 2019, in loving memory of my favorite Snowboarder model, RIP Ken 5/4/19. (regular price $6) Any other IrishGirlieKnits pattern sales profits will go to helping his 15-year old daughter, Lil Snowboarder on my blog. He was a single dad, and she was his whole world. A GoFundMe is also here.

Designed especially for Plucktober 2015, be sure to check out the Plucky Knitter Ravelry Group for the Official SAL with prizes.

Bold. Audacious. Impressive. This shawl is the perfect vehicle to demonstrate just that. Show how plucky you are with your color choices. Whether it is one bold pop of color in the chevron pattern, such as how the pink is used here, or a chevron of gradient hues, the possibilities are endless. This shawl also works well with a variety of different weight yarns too! Have fun with this. Be bold. Be plucky. Be bodacious!

Note: Instructions are written for a top-down shawl. Both charted and written instructions are provided for the chevron edging.
