Pattern Description:

I have always been fascinated by the Chevron pattern, made eternally famous by the wonderful Missoni brand founded in the early 1950's. The peaks and troughs look stunning when worked in multiple, vibrant colours.

I wanted to take the basic chevron, play around with it, and see what happens. This pattern is the result. The 'peaks' wander from side to side, and pull the 'troughs' with them, adding some fluidity to the normally uniform pattern.

Using a multi-colour yarn with abrupt colour changes also means there is no need to change yarns whilst knitting, the stripes simply knit themselves.

The scarf is designed to use one ball of yarn, but can easily be made longer by using additional yarn.
