Easy Chevron Knit Scarf- a beautiful, textured design that's a breeze to knit!
Scarf weather is almost upon us!
I used Lion Brand Landscapes for this project. The self-striping is beautiful and it's perfect for the chevron stitch! It comes in an array of saturated, jewel tones that are ideal for fall.
The Chevron Stitch looks complicated but it's actually simple to knit. The design is created by making some increases and decreases. There are 2 terms beginner knitters may not be familiar with- KFB and PSSO.
KFB means to knit in front and the back of a stitch. It's an easy way to increase a stitch.
PSSO means pass the slip stitch over. This decreases a stitch.
If you've never knit the Chevron Stitch before, check out the video below to see how it's done:
