Sunchaser is a sideways triangular shawl that is worked tip to tip with simple increases. It alternates between Garter and various slipped stitch sections and ends with a clean edge i-cord bind off. Slipped stitch Herringbone stitch uses one color per row to achieve fun yet classic appearance with irresistible texture. The wrong side also looks interesting.

Sunchaser is a sister pattern to the Rainchaser hat and cowl set that uses the same stitch to create a gentle gradient.
