The Chevron Scarf

I am knitting away on the Chevron Scarf. This is out of the book Last Minute Knitted Gifts and I love this pattern. Since it is only 4 rows of pattern, I can remember it! Especially when rows 2-4 are purl,knit,purl.

I am knitting this out of Woolly Boully's Red Robin: Bird, Nest and Eggs in her scrumptious fingering weight yarn. This is some of the softest yarn with nylon in it that I have ever felt. Hmmm, this will be added to my Christmas gift list for someone special.

Speaking of Holidays, I know it is only July 1st but it is time to be giving some thought about it. I have a couple of pair of socks knit up, a couple of hats and now this scarf that will be used as gifts, after marketplace in Nov. What are you working on and what have you finished as holiday gifts?

Love the colors of your scarf. I finished one and... call me crazy, am working on a second one. But you're right, easy pattern to remember.
