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.

Do You need a substitute yarn?

As of 2019, the yarn I used has been discontinued, so I recommend, Lion Brand Homespun as a good substitute.  You will still get the same beautiful chevron pattern and softness.


This yarn is made by Lion Brand, and is a Weight 5 – Bulky yarn.


Fiber: 98% Acrylic, 2% Polyester
Yardage: 185 yards
Hook: 6.5 mm (K-10.5)
Substitute: Lion Brand SoftBall

You can make your scarf shorter or longer if you prefer by adding or subtracting rows.

Finishing: Fasten off yarn and weave in loose ends throughout the crochet scarf with a yarn needle.

You will need to block this scarf since it tends to roll up. Be sure to read this great article on blocking here for extra help with this part.

  1. I love this scarf! I made it the first time last year when I was just learning to crochet, and now I am finishing a second one (with various interim projects) using a variegated yarn. My six-year-old granddaughter saw me crocheting it and said she’d like to have one that’s tie-dyed, so I found some yarn that looks tie-dyed and am going to start on it next. I hope she remembers that she said that when she gets it for Christmas! I’m eager to try your other chevron patterns now. Thank you!

  2. Hi Krista,

    There is a slight error/miscommunication in the original pattern. In the step by step tutorial you make it clear that the last part has only 5 sc. in the original pattern it seems as though it should be 7. It is throwing the count off. Thanks for the great pattern!

    1. Hi Nicki,

      I am so glad you like the pattern!! 🙂 There are 7 stitches left at the end. You sc in 5 of them, and the last two are a sc2tog.

      I hope this helps. 🙂

  3. This is my first attempt at chevron & you pattern is easy to follow. I was just wondering what the stitch multiple is, I want to make some more with some more points.

  4. I so want to try this. I just started crocheting and made a basic straight scarf for my dad. I started to read the instructions and got overwhelmed. Help

  5. thanks for this pattern. will use black and gold (my fav NFL team) for some cozy holiday gifts. thanks for sharing Krista:)

  6. In row 2 when it says to repeat row 1, do I repeat from * to * or from the very beginning of row 1?

  7. On row 2 when it says to repeat row 1 do I just repeat from *to * or do I repeat from the very beginning with the sc2tog? Every time I try i always end up off with my stitches.
