My Alternative Yarn Suggestions & Amounts: WYS Croft Shetland Tweed Aran One 100g hank each of three shades or Kilcarra Tweed Two 50g balls each of three shades or you can have fun and choose One 50g ball in six shades!

My design ideas and advice: The chevron stitch pattern is one of my favourites because I love how this simple two row pattern, combined with a striped pattern, creates this amazing zig zag. It epitomises everything I love about knitting. Simple stitch, simple stripe, simply beautiful. You might find a few other of my patterns that use this stitch!
