Iris (Chevron Jumper)

Product Description

This one, like Karreck, makes me think of the pattern the sea leaves on the shore the zigzag of the chevrons even looks like the calming waves of the sea.  You can knit this collar as long or short as you wish.  I love a long collar but this design would look great as a crew neck too.
