A couple of weeks ago I was packing for a two-week vacation in Mexico. Our family trips consist of sleeping, eating and lying around, so I have a lot of time to knit. I wanted to work on a pattern that was easy and quick to finish.
I’m not usually a fan of knitting scarves as they go on forever and ever, but I realized I don’t have many scarves and the cowls I’ve made muss my hair when I take them off.
I don’t do lacework and cable scarves have a wrong side, which I find unattractive. That’s when I found a free downloadable pattern from Ravelry called the Reversible Chevron Scarf designed by Debbie Seton of The Crimson Rabbit.

This scarf has a beautiful texture and the design, which is made up of just knits and purls, looks the same on both sides. Just what I wanted!
It wasn’t a difficult pattern in terms of technique but it required a certain amount of concentration as each segment is completed in 16 rows. I found working in rows of 4 was the easiest way to knit it without forgetting where I was.
I used Rowan Creative Focus Worsted on size 8 US needles. This yarn is fluffy but a tad itchy, so I don’t recommend it for folks who are sensitive to wool. I couldn’t resist this color though! And it goes so well with my sage winter coat.
