I have fallen in love with self-striping yarns but had to admit to myself that I didn’t know what to do with them, as I don’t like to knit small fiddly things in the round (socks, mitts, etc.) that would show off the stripes.

So, I decided a chevron striped scarf would be just the ticket! But all the patterns I found included eyelets created where the increases occur, which I didn’t like, so I created my own.

Now I’m sharing it with the world. :)

P.S. You don’t have to make a striping scarf, of course. Chevrons look great in solids too! You can also use multiple!e colors to create the stripes: maybe leftovers?
