Below is my version of the Lacy V scarf by Pegg Thomas. You can find the free pattern here
http://www.twinwillowsfarm.com/lacy_v_scarf.html.
My details:
Cashsoft DK Classic Yarns 2 balls 142 yds each, US 7, 6 x 62 16 repeats each half
I made two halves, 1 ball each, Kitchener stitch the two together taking care to match design, because I wanted the Vs to point up on both ends.

I did discover there is something worse than Kitchener - frogging Kitchener  Sad. My first attempt I skipped a stitch or something and the points of the V's did not come even close to matching up. As you can see in the pix I still need to work on the technique - luckily it doesn't look near as bad when it is being worn. But wow does that close up pix show every single mistake - not sure I wanna take pictures of my knitting anymore.

I've decided scarves are perfect knitting. You can try out all different pattern/stitches and not be committed to them for long periods of time.

I completely agree! Thanks for sharing the link - I've never seen this pattern before. You did a great job and the color you picked is gorgeous!
