Chevron Shawl
Created By: Jean Allen
Craft: knit
Materials: Lion Brand Homespun, colorways "Golden" and "Fiesta." Size 11 circular needle. I placed markers between pattern repeats to prevent making mistakes in counting.
Pattern Source: lionbrand: L0581

A group in my church make shawls and lap robes for members who have been ill, have had surgery, or are experiencing some other life trauma. We don't call them "prayer shawls" because we don't stick to the formula of praying as we knit (or crochet.) Instead, we call them "care shawls." The chevron pattern intrigued me, so I cast on extra stitches, enough to make a shawl. Because I don't like to purl and because stockinette tends to curl, I opted to knit the purl row of the original pattern to provide a garter stitch chevron. I wish the pattern-maker had done that instead of writing it in stockinette. I intend to make more like it and I heartily recommend it to others.
