A picture of my first Chevron


I finished this Chevron Shawl on the 14th of June, but just got its picture up. It is made from two colors of Lion brand Homespun and is 22" x 55" without blocking. I did it in a three stitch pattern instead of four.

I also have a scarf I am doing on the needles and it is in two colors of Jasmine. I will get a picture of it soon. Now that this shawl is done, I don't have to chooses between them as which one to work on! I am going to start another one soon though as we have several baptisms coming up at church. The new one will be all white and approximately 45" square for use as a baby blanket. I just love this pattern. Interesting enough to keep me going, mindless enough that I can do it during meetings.

I love this! Homespun is one of my favorite yarns.My 13y/o was wanting to make one but dreaded the small needles. This would be perfect for her! What size needles did you use?

I love this - without the super-contrasty colors, you can really see the waviness of the pattern and show off the yarn itself. Beautiful!

That is so pretty! It looks so nice and soft!
