Not only are chevrons HUGE in the fashion world right now, they are actually pretty easy to work once you get the hang of it. The Chevron Lace Shrug is a great pattern for beginning "chevroners." There is a video to help and the pattern itself is so well written.
The pattern was written up as a yarn review of Red Heart Boutique Treasure and let me tell you, you get the full enjoyment of that yarn in this pattern. The stitches are simple which lets the yarn speak. It would be really great for any yarn that has a lot of color or texture. The basic stitches really let the yarn to all the work in this pattern.
I give the pattern 5 out of 5 stars. It is easy for beginners, it includes a video to help with stitches that may be complicated and it works up really quickly. Great pattern and a great accessory to wear out on the town. It is designed to be a little big, so if you would like yours to be smaller and closer fitting I would make a size smaller than you normally do. I generally wear a woman's medium and this is how the medium size Chevron Lace Shrug fit. Ann includes directions on how to measure to you can see what size would be best for you if you have any questions before you start.
