This is Katherine, a summery shell of Chevron Lace. This quick knit is figure-hugging and extends hip length. You’ll find its 9 stitch by 8 row stitch pattern repeat is easily mastered, creating just enough variety to keep the project interesting while flying off the needles. This design is worked bottom-up on circular needles, splitting at the armholes where it is then worked flat. A few Garter rounds from picked up stitches trim its edges. Shown in a fingering weight silk/wool blend, it’s a perfect summer knit! Enjoy!
