chevron

Finally finished my chevron scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I used one and a half skeins of each color. Koigu #802 and #123.
It measures 88 inches long.

When I first started this, I did not like the color combo. Now, I love it.
A look behind the scenes. We spent the day in Morgantown, West Virginia.
These are really so much fun to make. And, wear. Check out the others on flickr.

I might have to buckle and just make one of these. I love that colorway you've got... so pretty. And long and skinny for stylishness. Perfect. :D

Looks like you guys are having a great time... are you still on the coast there? We passed right through Carmel on Thursday, and I even looked for the Silver Belle sweater, but alas. I did not see you. Instead I saw lots of fish and ate at in-and-out. Mmmm. Burgers.

Lovely scarf!

I've never knitted anything squiggly like a chevron pattern. I like the scarf! Very squiggly. ;)

I am almost done with mine, slowly but surely. Yours looks great! and I love the combo as well. I think it is impossible to get a bad combo, actually.

Great colours! I have taged you, so look into my bog ;)

KnitPastis said...

WOW! I love this scarf on you so much. It's making me think I should get one on the needles. I wished I had two hanks of med STR and then I would. Gotta look through my stash to see if I have anything else to make it in. I think you can make anyone knit anything. LOL You make it all look so pretty. Enabler:)
