I'm crazy for chevrons, and I've been knitting a couple of different versions knitting the free ZickZack Scarf pattern . It's one of my favorite kinds of scarf patterns: a simple 1-row repeat, and a great palette for color play.
I'm knitting the first version from two contrasting balls of self-striping sock yarn. I love the colors and textures and want to keep knitting just to see how the colors are going to line up next.
But I'm having even more fun knitting a narrower scarf from my stash of self-striping sock yarn leftovers. I have a pretty good supply of these small balls, and I culled colors in the blue-orange-brown range, and I'm about to throw in a bit of purple for good measure.
I'm alternating the organge-brown yarns with the blues and purples, and enjoying the visual treat.
