The chevron pattern seems to be a new trend in fashion and design. I've seen a few chevron scarves around, so I figured it was time to write a pattern for it. This adorable scarf will be perfect for fall and winter, and it would make a lovely, personal gift for the holidays. I'd like to try this pattern out with different yarns/weights, too, for different effects. I love this pattern because it becomes mindless after a while once you starting repeating the same row throughout the scarf, so it's perfect for cuddling up by the TV or taking it to-go!
I love anything with stripes, and this chevron pattern is the perfect twist on the traditional stripe. I love the neutral colors and their ability to go with any color, but you can make it with any colors you like, with varying stripe widths too.
You may sell the finished product from this pattern, but please reference and link this post. Please don't claim this pattern as your own or sell the pattern. I'd love to see pictures of your finished product! You can put them up on Ravelry or post it on my Facebook Page.

Notes:I carried the colors on the sides and put a border around the scarf, so you can't even tell. It saves a lot of time (and yarn)!
There are so many different techniques for the chevron/zig-zag/ripple (whatever you want to call it) stitch, so this scarf can be made in anyway that you like. I like this technique because the ripples are sharp and I, personally, don't like the eyelets in the chevron stitch.
Scarf:With [A], ch 44. This stitch requires a multiple of 14+2, in case you'd like to make this a blanket or something wider than a scarf.
Row 1:2 dc into third ch from hook. *Dc into the next 3 ch. (dc3tog in next 3 ch) twice. Dc into next 3 ch. (3 dc in next ch) twice. Repeat from *. Dc into next 3 ch. (dc3tog in next 3 ch) twice. Dc into next 3 ch. 3 dc in last ch.
Switch to [B] (see pictures for color change). Ch 3 and turn (Ch 3 acts as a dc here and throughout).
When carrying the colors on the sides, you just drop the color you were working with, and pick it up when you need it again after completing two rows.
Row 2:2 dc into first dc. *Dc in next 3 dc. (dc3tog in next 3 dc) twice. Dc in next 3 dc. (3 dc in next dc) twice. Repeat from *. Dc in next 3 dc. (dc3tog in next 3 dc) twice. Dc in next 3 dc. 3 dc in top of ch 3. Ch 3 and turn.
Repeat Row 2 in [B]
Repeat Row 2 alternating with [A] and [B] every 2 rows. Continue this pattern until the scarf is the desired length. Make sure to end with just 1 row of [A]. When the two ends are stitched together, it'll make 2 rows of [A]. Do not fasten off when finished.
Completing the Scarf:Bring the end to the beginning being careful not to twist the scarf. Sl st the ends together to make a circle. Make sure the peaks and valleys match on each end when stitching them together (see pictures). I stopped once in a while to make sure they were still lined up. Make sure to go through each stitch on both ends. This will leave a seam, but when you flip the scarf inside-out, you can hardly see it. You can also sew the ends together with a tapestry needle.
