School Spirit Chevron Scarf


I have been working on this Chevron for, um, about ............10 months. It's Justin & Sabrina's school colors, I plan on wearing it to all his football games for the next 5 years.
Though the Chevron Scarf is beautiful when finished it is quite frankly one of the most boring knits I have ever encountered. This may be the last one I ever make.(Until Justin plays football in college then I will have to whip one out then, too)
This pattern seems to go on for an eternity.

I finished another Chevron last year & should of went down a needle size(a #4 instead of a #5) It's gappy.....I occasionally look at it & debate on ripping it out & making socks. Someday.....

You are so clever! That is the perfect way to show off school color spirit in a stylish way.

You know,so many times I can relate to what you say:) For instance, on Ruby where it said "to continue in pattern" I did the samething you did but got back on track. Now you say how you will probably never knit one of these scarfs again. Oh yeah, been there with my own Cheveron Scarf which I didn't make long enough.LOL Had I known how much I love it now then I would have stuck with it and made it longer. I know it seems boring but if it motivates you ....here's a big CHEERing you on babe! You are going to rock out in this scarf at all the games and you are going to love it. What yarns are you using for this?

I love the scarf! I want one but now I am hesitant to start one. I don't do well with boring patterns - but if the outcome is this cute I will probably have to try it!

It's boring? Really? Too bad, it looks really great.

I love your slideshow!
