Cheri Chevron by Ambah O'Brien
Knit tip to tip, Cheri is an easy-to-wear, shallow triangular shawl with a modern aesthetic. Classic chevron patterning is reimagined here with options to keep every knitter engaged. Knit up the kidsilk version and enjoy the translucent contrast between the two fibres used. Or knit up the fingering weight version and play with colour rather than texture. Either way, you can make a bold or subtle statement with your colour selection and create yourself a wardrobe classic to enjoy for years to come.
