Polychrome Heart

Simple texture panels flank a chain of colourful chevron blocks for a striking geometric wrap. Polychrome Heart is worked in three parts, each building on the last, for a relaxing knit with enough going on to keep your interest. To make this shawl, you’ll need to know how to knit, purl, increase, decrease, and pick up stitches. Pattern includes an illustrated tutorial for working German Short Rows.
