This pattern is also available as part of the Shifty Chevron Collection

This scarf has a slight 3D illusion. Stripes provide color contrast; shaping creates the chevron pattern; and the final addition of short rows changes the thickness of each stripe. As the stripes become thick and thin, they almost appear to pop forward off the scarf. As a bonus, the Parakeet (green) color is UV reactive and glows under blacklight.
