This large and snuggly triangle-shaped shawl is worked from the top down in three contrasting colors of fingering weight yarn.

The textured zig-zags stand out against the background and appear by changing foreground and background alternately. Working only one color yarn at a time, simple slipped stitches and garter are used to feature textured raised bars that create a stripey vertical chevron pattern.

With plenty of room to play with color in the three zig-zagging sections, you will be able to find your own combination of fun!!!!

Instructions are both written and charted, so you’ll be comfortable knitting, whatever your preference might be.
