Painting Chevrons Kits launch at Stephen & Penelope Friday, May 1 at 5pm Amsterdam time / 11am EDT.

Painting Chevrons is a large rectangular wrap with slipped stitches. Increases and decreases form the chevron points and you can knit the scarf as long as you want. Choose DK weight yarn for a large width and wingspan or knit the same instructions with fingering weight yarn for a more drapey lightweight wrap. This pattern is very simple with garter stitch and stockinette stitch, so it’s ideal for knitting while watching your favorite shows.
