Chevron scarf pattern

I’m sure you’ve noticed the temperature dropping so it is the perfect time to start knitting a scarf for the winter months ahead. The design of this scarf makes it a suitable gift for both males and females.

As with my other knitting patterns, this scarf is a rectangle with no increases or decreases, so is suitable for those with basic knitting abilities – as well as being a quick project for the more experienced 😉

grey chevron knitted unisex scarf pattern beginnerAbbreviations I have not mentioned before are:

Sl1 – slip stitch knitwise (put right needle through stitch on left needle as if to knit but just slip it onto right needle without knitting)

Sl1p – slip stitch purlwise (put right needle through stitch on left needle as if to purl but just slip it onto right needle without purling)

Here is a video I found on Youtube that demonstrating slip stitches

By slipping, instead of working the first stitch on the row, you end up with a neater edge!

Chevron Scarf

I used 7mm needles & 100g chunky yarn to make a scarf approx 5″ wide & 44″ long. Use more yarn for a longer scarf.

As this is a scarf you do not need to check the gauge.
