Big Chevron Scarf in Autumn Colors
By Ratchadawan Chambers
This soft and furry scarf is surely quite a comforter to wear around the house this Winter. It can be worn as a scarf, a shawl and a body wrap for a chilly day. The scarf body is knitted in chevron and feather stitches. It's easy enough for beginners and yet it look so elegance. I love the zigzag finished look on both edges of the scarf. This pattern could be great for making a table runner too, I think.
When buying yarn for this big chevron scarf, try choosing the yarn in a single color or two but definitely not three. The yarn should be smooth in texture so that the pattern can stand out better.
I bought this bulky yarn which I made this scarf a long time ago and I can't even find it now. It's made out of soft acrylic and has furry effect to it. It's so comfy and cozy that I also knitted a vest for my twin girls when they were a year old.
