Can anyone enlighten me on how you'd knit a V pattern? I have this vision of a scarf whose ends come to a point. I have googled my fingers off and can't find anything.

Would love any help you all can give!

If you knit just one point of a chevron it will give you a pointed end.  smallknits.com has a pattern for one that uses self striping sock yarn (Angus)

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

A v-pattern in terms of an overall pattern, or just the ends?  If you want an overall pattern of 'v's, subloke's chevron idea sounds like your best bet.  I think you'd have to knit it in two pieces and seam in the middle, or it would point out on one end and in on the other (haven't tried it myself to know.  If it's just a matter of wanting the ends pointy, you should be able to do it with increases/decreases.  Actually, my first scarf turned out that way on one end because I didn't know how to bind off so I just kept knitting stitches together until I ran out Wink

Hi efferjen,

there is a couple of ways you could do this:

You could use a discloth/neckerchief pattern to start the scarf, and then just keep knitting across when it is a perfect triangle. Here is a couple of links for that:
http://www.jimsyldesign.com/~dishbout/kpatterns/grfavorite.html
http://frugalknit12330.goeserv.com/homepage/60scarf.htm

when you got to the amount of stitches you wanted for the scarf, just start kniting back and forth without increasing.

Or you could do Mitres:

http://knitting.about.com/library/blmiters.htm Scroll down the page to Another Mitred Equilateral Triangle. You could do that for each end of the scarf.

Hope that helps!
