Chic, Shapely Chevrons for Knit or Crochet with Lily Chin
Most of us are familiar with the zig-zag effects that stacking decreases and increases on top of one another produces. We find them most often on what is known as "ripple" afghans. Learn the many different, decorative stitches that do this from "Old Shale" lace to dynamic, colored stripes. Familiarize yourself with the different kinds of increases and decreases. Then apply these to uniquely sculptural fabrics. Find out how to plan for A-line garments, circular skirts and peplums, even yokes. Then take this technique even further to fancy floral applique's and leaves.
Note: crocheters may apply same principles so they're most welcome.
__At least 3 colors of heavy worsted-weight or chunky yarn and appropriate needles.
