Checkmate Shawl
Designed by Rachel Brockman

The Checkmate Shawl is bold, graphic, and perfect for wrapping around your shoulders to stay warm and cozy without sacrificing style. Tassels add a little something special. The stitch pattern is easily memorized and rhythmic, but this will give the beginner knitter a chance to play with shaping while maintaining a stitch pattern. This accessory is the perfect gateway into the addictive world of shawl knitting!

PATTERN NOTES
The Checkmate Shawl is knit flat beginning along the widest edge and decreasing to the point, forming a right triangle. This pattern includes fully written instructions in addition to charts. Use the Broken Garter Stripes pattern in the Stitch Guide to create your gauge swatch.

When working in the Broken Garter Stripes pattern, color changes occur every two rows. Do not break yarn at the end of each stripe. Instead, twist the strands of yarn around one another every RS row.

The Checkmate Shawl is available as part of e-book Joyful Stitches, and as an individual pattern through Ravelry.
