Choose five colors of fingering weight yarn to knit this beautiful semi-circular shawl. This pattern is knit seamlessly from the top center down to the chevron border. Simple sections of stripes and slip stitches alternate between the multi-color slip stitch sections. You only work with one color at a time, resulting in a mesmerizing and elegant pattern. The final chevron section decorates the border followed by an I-cord bind off. Select five high contrast colors for a bold statement or try five soft shades for a more subtle shadow effect.
