If you follow my work, then you probably know that I love to play with shapes! My ZygZak Shawl came out of the pure necessity of experimentation with the crochet chevron pattern and I wanted something engaging, with texture that keep you interesting and result in a beautiful item.

ZygZak Shawl is a slightly asymmetric, triangular shawl worked sideways from the sharp start down to the bottom edge. The beautiful asymmetrical shape makes this crochet chevron shawl pattern unique and fun.

The body of the shawl is worked in a combination of single crochet stitches and a chevron pattern. Designing this crochet chevron shawl pattern was pure joy. Everything just worked and I am surprised that this simple and repetitive pattern creates the romantic yet modern shawl.

This crochet chevron shawl pattern is perfect for playing with colors. You can use a gradient or just an assorted combination of multiple colors. Even using just one color will result in amazing effect.

For my sample I used Drops Alpaca yarn in three solid colors. I used this yarn before for my Spring Solstice Wrap and Arrow Wrap and I really like it. It’s fingering weight yarn but ZygZak Shawl is marvelously flexible that work with any weight of yarn and can be made at any gauge.

The pattern is written in a way that you can easily adjust the length and stop earlier once you reached the length you prefer. It will look beautiful at any size.

I hope you have as much fun with this crochet chevron shawl pattern as I did. I really look forward to seeing all of the amazing colors everyone chooses to use.
