Pattern Description from Scarf Style: “Simple stripe patterns offer many design possibilities. In these vibrant blue and green scarves, Debbie Bliss has turned classic stripes into zigzags by working them in a chevron pattern. She likes the way the combination of strong colors and zigzags hark back to the jazzy patterns of the 1970s. Pom-poms on the border of the smaller scarf call attention to the funky, pointed ends.”

Note from Raveler:
Yardage is perhaps misleading because of colorwork issues. The child’s size requires the larger amounts of yarn.
