Our Striped Chevron Scarf is a wonderfully summery accessory—whether the weather is cloudy or cloudless! Two row stripes zig-zag off your needles in an easy-to-memorize chevron pattern paired with alternating color blocks. They remind us of vintage café awnings, beach umbrellas, and comfy hammocks swinging in the sun (all perfectly acceptable knitting spots).

We’ve knit this piece in a new cotton-blend—Berroco Modern Cotton DK. Differing from its big sister, Modern Cotton, only in weight, this cool fiber is a warm weather essential. The balance of Pima cotton and Modal rayon means it’s hard-wearing and machine-washable. A palette of sophisticated neutrals and cheerful brights play together perfectly side-by-side in the waving stripes of this sunny scarf.

Approx. 8 x 72”/20 x 183cm after blocking.

4 skeins Berroco Modern Cotton DK (335 yds/306m each): 1 skein each in 4 colors.
Designate colors A–D; our sample used A = 6656 Napatree, B = 6601 Sandy Point, C = 6624 Salty Brine, D = 6651 Narraganset.
Or approx. 660 yds/605m of an equivalent DK-weight yarn (approx. 165 yds/151m each of 4 colors).
Note: Four skeins of Modern Cotton DK will make 2 scarves in this pattern.

US 6 (4mm) needles, or size to obtain gauge.
Blunt darning needle to finish.

Approx. 27 sts = 4”/10cm in chevron pattern stitch.
