Chevron Scarf

Here is a fun Chevron Scarf that is perfect for using up those of those small balls of yarn that you just don’t know what to do with but you cant bring yourself to get rid of them!  This colorful chevron scarf is so warm and has so much texture!  Once you get the first row done you will fly through this simple repeating pattern and have it completed in no time!

On the comical side of things….when my dad saw this latest project he asked if I was trying to show off how many colors I had!  I had a good laugh!

Notes:
1. Pattern is worked in multiples of 10, scarf seen is 300 SSC long
2. Entire project is worked with the right side facing once you start the chevron stitching, so after reaching the end of the scarf you will finish off and not turn
3. Each color is only worked for 1 row, if you want to work it for more than 1 row then simply CH1 and turn and work Front Post Double Crochets

The Chevron Stitch pattern, um which one?!

If someone has said this to me before this endeavor, I mean washcloth, I probably would have thought ‘no big deal’, its just a Chevron Stitch.  Well let me tell you something!  ‘Chevron Stitch’ is not just a simple pattern…..there are seriously dozens of different chevron designs out there!  Whether they are worked using a SC v. DC (or some other stitch that provides height), do you use a Cluster Stitches v. skip stitches for your decrease, do you CH v. adding stitches for your increase…..Phew! And I know im missing multiple other options that can be added into the mix!

So after looking through all lots of different designs and not really finding what I was looking for, specifically a pattern that provided a way to square off the Chevron edging, I decided to ‘wing it’.  And after several attempts I think I finally found one I am happy with!

Repeat row 2 until desired size is reached.

NOTE: This is an optional edging, if you like you can simply SC around the finished piece (put an extra SC in the corners, and 2SC in the CH2 spaces to keep it from curling).  This 2Row Edging will help you to square off the Chevron so you have ‘flat’ edges.
