About this Pattern
Straight and Arrow is a long crescent shawl worked from the top down. To achieve vertical stripes like this, most shawls are worked sideways or use stranded colourwork. But in this case, vertical stripes play nicely thanks to the use of slipped stitches. Only one strand of yarn is used on each row, and the technique creates a doubled fabric—perfectly squishy and cosy. The vertical stripes then transition to a horizontally striped chevron border that is light and airy.
Two skeins of 4-ply (fingering) yarn in two colours make this shawl large and luxurious. Choose two solids or a solid and a variegated. With simple slipped-stitch stripes and easy-to-read lace chevrons, there is little chance of your knitting being naughty. What you do while wearing it is all up to you*.
The pattern is written and charted and has been professionally tech edited and test knit.
