Chevron and Feather Scarf in Sunseeker

Subtle sparkle is fun - especially if it is wearable sparkle.  I am a big fan of something that is soft and sparkly.   Sunseeker is our newest cotton blend - Cotton - Acrylic and Metallic and comes in 15 fashion inspired colors.  As an added bonus it is machine washable and dryable - I actually ended up testing a swatch with towels and it came out unscathed! Once again, I am trying to find out what I can create with just 1 skein.  Fortunately with Sunseeker, there are 237 yards/100 grams.  I thought a simple lacy scarf might be a great fit and it worked up quickly and beautifully on size 8 needles.
