Introduction: Chevron Striped Scarf

I bought a bag of assorted swatches at ArtFibers in San Francisco, all in autumn colors.

These are very expensive yarns, like $15 to $20 a ball, so I wouldn't likely buy a lot of it. But in individual stripes you can really appreciate the beauty of each one. There is soft boucle, fuzzy furry stuff, cozy cashmere, metallic accents, all sorts of stuff.

I planned it so that the softest ones are at the neck. And the Chevron stripes point the same way when the scarf ends are hanging down. This is done using some short rows in the middle. And it's basic black wool (Lion Brand wool) for the stripes in between.

Hi, Thanks for asking ! I got the idea from an online site, but that site no longer exists. Luckily I have it saved as a Word file. Give me your email address and I'll send it to you. Best wishes, Brenda

Cool! I like the second scarf in the fourth picture, it looks very fuzzy. :-)

Thanks! It's actually one scarf, with different sections, but I appreciate the compliment!
