The Yarn That’s Great for This Chevron Scarf
To begin my chevron design, I used beautiful yarn from the Isaac Mizrahi skyscraper craft yarn line called Chrysler. This yarn is considered a bulky fiber but is more like a worsted weight, in my opinion.
It is incredibly soft though, and does have a neutral palette of blended colors which slowly shade from one to the next!
The best part of this yarn is that it creates a natural striping in the pattern as you work, which means no need for color change and switching yarns.
More Yarn That is Perfect for This Scarf!
If you have trouble finding this particular yarn Lion Brand Homespun would be a good substitute. You will still get the same beautiful chevron pattern and softness.
