I am so excited to finally share this gorgeous shawl I have been working on – ZygZak Shawl! If you follow my work, then you probably know that I love to play with shape! This shawl came out of the pure necessity of experimentation with the chevron pattern and I wanted something engaging, with texture that keep you interesting and result in a beautiful item.

Pattern is now available for purchase on both Ravelry HERE and Etsy HERE. It’s fully written and charted, intended to be easy to follow. A step-by-step photo tutorial is also available in the end of the pattern for better visualization.
ZygZak Shawl is a slightly asymmetric, triangular shawl worked sideways from the sharp start down to the bottom edge. The body of the shawl is worked in a combination of single crochet stitches and a chevron pattern. Designing this shawl was pure joy. Everything just worked and I am surprised that this simple and repetitive pattern creates the romantic yet modern shawl.
Materials & Tools:
- Yarn Drops Alpaca (100% alpaca – 50g/167m) in 3 different colors:
Approx. 90g of Yarn A dark pink (3770),
Approx. 85g of Yarn B white (101),
Approx. 45g of Yarn C light pink (3140).
- Hook size 3.5mm. Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge,
- Tapestry needle (to weave and hide yarn ends),
- 19 stitch markers.
Size after blocking: One size: approx. 168cm/64.2” wide and 68cm/26.8” long at center.
Gauge after blocking:
After row 12: 16.8cm/6.6’’ wide and 6.8cm/2.7 long at center.
Gauge is not crucial for this project. However, changes might result in different yardage requirements and finished size.
This shawl 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 Alpaca yarn from Drops in three solid colors. I used this yarn for my Spring Solstice Wrap last year 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. It will look beautiful at any size.
I hope you have as much fun with this shawl as I did. I really look forward to seeing all of the amazing colors everyone chooses to use.
