This pattern is a simple two row repeat however you are also striping at the same time so for beginners it will take a moment or two to get used to this.
My design ideas and advice: I love a chevron, it is one of my favourite stitch techniques especially when combined with a three shade stripe. So simple yet so stunning! This scarf uses one hank of each of the three shades and creates a snug cowl. I am going to knit another one using two hanks of the three shades….unless someone else does before me!
