Luverne is a randomly striped, simple chevron shawl with a knit as you go “mock” icord edge. Once established, the two row pattern is easy to remember. The 1st sample shown is knitted in fingering weight yarn. The Pink and Blue color blocked scarves are knitted in DK weight. This pattern can readily be adjusted for a sport or DK weight by adjusting your cast on and /or needle size.

Luverne is also a small town in south Alabama, and is self acclaimed to be the “friendliest city in the south”!
