Chevron delight is exactly right! My other major piece of vacation knitting was knitting the second half of this cowl. I used exactly two skeins of sport weight yarn from my favorite self-striping indie dyer, String Theory Colorworks. I love how most of her colorways alternate longer stripes with smaller ones, making fun patterns. It's sooo hard to accurately photograph this colorway. The modeled pic is closer to accurate--the pink is more raspberry (my favorite!). Between this and my fine tune cowl, I'm totally set for winter now!
