Coconino shawl

I love the spirited tribal vibe of this chevron-knitted shawl.

It's sure to ward off knitting boredom with a variety of techniques ... stripes, stranded colorwork, and lace.

The shawl is worked flat from narrow tip to wide lace end. The chevrons are shaped with simple increases and decreases, and occasional knitted cast-ons create the irregular triangle shape.
