Thy name is Chevron scarf...
I am completely and totally obsessed with knitting this scarf. I started it on Saturday after seeing Sarah's and I am loving it!!!
I don't know what is so very hypnotizing about it... is it the color? the pattern? Both?
I'm sure most of you have seen the Flickr group of all the gorgeous Chevron Scarfs out there. And I'm sure I'm the last person on earth who hasn't knit this, but let me just warn the other 1% of the knitting population who haven't knit this - it's addictive! It comes with me in the car - to restaurants and to bed!
The yarn is thicker than sock weight - it's a light worsted - so it's knitting up faster than the sock weight would have.
The pattern I'm using is a little different from the rest of the Chevron Scarfers too - I'm doing more of a Jaywalker style scarf.
I'm using 6 balls of Koigu that I got at last year's Sheep and Wool. I was a new knitter at the time and had absolutely no idea what I was going to do with this yarn... but I knew I wanted it. So I grabbed a handful and took them home. They had been waiting for their purpose for quite a while.
I am alternating them two at a time for this scarf. Two rows in one color - then two rows in the other. Here are the colors I'm working from:
I love it!
Speaking of the Jaywalker pattern - here is a Jaywalker sock I completed. It's going to be for my mom. One more to go!
She picked this lovely blue yarn from Zen yarn Garden. It was actually a gift from Jolene - thanks girl!
