For Christmas this year, I want to do several hand-knit things (I am broke and tricking myself into thinking only shopping for yarn will save money, har!), and among them are the first 2 "boy projects" I will do. I want to do 2 scarves in a two color wide-striped chevron stitch, but with only one point, like this:

I have already found the free pattern at Straw.com/Crystal Palace (http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/shimmer_chev_scarf.html
) but I do not like how it looks. What I was envisioning would look a lot more, well, professional (one of my friends is a model so the less hand knit it looks, the better). Is there a way I can knit this without those huge center seams, multiple points, or a wrong side? I do not have mad knitting skills, but I can figure out most things, I have just never made up a pattern on my own before, and these are important things to get right- even thought they are not boyfriend sweaters- since they are gifts.
Oh yeah, I planned on using Lion brand Wool-Ease worsted weight, unless you have a better suggestion.
