Mosaic AND lace AND chevrons? Oh, yes, please.
Featuring bands of stand-out mosaic that melt seamlessly into simple lace, Chevronelle is varied enough to hold your interest while still being easier to knit than it looks. The mosaic sections double as transitions between colors, so you can show off a handful of your favorites instead of being stuck with a single main color. Yarn tip: This pattern can handle specked or variegated skeins alongside solids or tonals. Just make sure yarns that share a mosaic section don’t include similar colors, even in small bits, or the motif will get lost.
The bias construction sets the bands of color and lace on an angle, lending drama and drape to the finished piece. And thanks to Chevronelle’s panel setup, you can easily create a shorter wrap if desired (and the pattern tells you how).
Lace and mosaic are both written and charted, and Chevronelle has been tech edited and test knit, so you can cast on with confidence!
