This beautiful handknit shawl is Pat’s latest creation. She made this regal version of the ‘Chevron Shenanigans‘ shawl, designed by Stephen West, using a mixture of yarns: Lichen and Lace 80/20 sock, Artfil Belle, and Manos del Uruguay Alegria. She used three skeins in total, one of each, plus a little scrap yarn, in black, for a contrasting bind-off.
It’s a fun pattern. Asymmetrical enough to be visually interesting and fun to knit, but also easy to work and easy to wear.
We love the way Pat has used different yarns to best advantage here. The tonal variations of the different purples complement each other beautifully, and the result is rich and interesting.
Great job, Pat!
