Chevron Scarf

Notre Dame Chevron Scarf
Notre Dame Chevron Scarf

football season is just not complete without proper attire. for her birthday this year i crocheted this notre dame chevron scarf for kelcy. learn from my mistakes tho:

1. i only bought 2 skeins of the navy yarn.

2. i also didn't keep the yarn packaging so when i went back to the store to buy another skein, they were out of the yarn and they couldn't figure out what i meant when i pulled out the incomplete scarf and said "i want another skein of this navy stuff, i don't know what the weight or brand is, i don't even know what the shade of navy it is but please make this happen."

thankfully their customer service was excellent and they talked me into blocking. after a cursory glance on youtube i decided to just steam iron the scarf and boom. done.

it turned out much nicer than i anticipated, much to my and kelcy's delight.

previous homemade presents for kelcy:



  1. Love the scarf. And also, your shopping style. Have you noticed that they speak some sort of secret language at yarn shops? I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY FREAKIN' GRAMS OF YARN MAKE ANYTHING. And yet, they persist in asking...

  2. Beautiful scarf, I love the chevron pattern!

  3. That scarf is amazing, Lan! Beautiful work! I am a weakling knitter, but working on getting better. My sister thankfully wants to begin knitting with me, so we can learn from each other! Totally jealous of this scarf, actually... i just finished a single-color (all I can handle) cowl, but it's cozy, anyway :)
