This chevron-shaped shawl has an upbeat tribal vibe, sure to ward off knitting boredom with a variery of techniques: stripes, stranded colorwork, & lace.

The shawl is worked flat from narrow tip to wide lace end, and uses increases, decreases, and occasional knitted cast-ons to develop its irregular triangle shape.
