Obsidian Chevron Scarf is finished and published and oh so cozy. I can't lie, I have a thing for chevrons, both in random configurations of width and color or regimental designs. I like the knit or crocheted, I like them lace-y or as fabric, I like them solid or striped, I like them here or there, I like them anywhere....sorry, got carried away. Chevrons are always striking and always in fashion. The Obsidian pattern is available on Ravelry.com.
Obsidian is knit with three colors of The Fibre Company, Road to China Light yarn. Road to China Light is a luxurious blend of Baby Alpaca, Cashmere, Camel and Silk. You must touch it!
This project became a study of color and it could have gone in so many directions. The colors I chose consisted of one accent color (smokey quartz/brown) and two harmonious colors (sapphire & apatitie/ blue & teal).
Choosing complimentary colors with an accent color would look fantastic as well. Complimentary colors are opposite each other on the color wheel (like blue & orange, purple & yellow, pink & green).
Just two colors (a main color and an accent color) is perfect for a very sophisticated look or can even be tonal color choice (like two shades of grey, etc). Definitely a handsome choice.
However, for those of you who like living on the edge, each accent row or color row could be a different color. A great option for using up odds and ends, using yarns with long stripes like Noro Yarn or stash busting,
The possiblities are endless..... Don't be afraid of choosing a color......Have fun..... its going to look fantastic whatever you choose.
Just a quick side note, the pattern gives tips on how to change colors and knit in the ends as you go....eliminating weaving in a gajillion end.
