Short Description: Eastaboga by A. Opie Designs. Eastaboga, a tiny little town in Alabama, situated somewhere between Birmingham and Atlanta...the name has nothing to do with the pattern... But Eastaboga rolls easily off the tongue and is fun to say. I'm hoping you will find this scarf just as much fun to knit and even better to wear! It starts as a simple chevron using your favorite colors as a striping sequence, followed by short rows to straighten out the inverted "v". The middle section is a simple diamond brocade pattern created with knits and purls. The final third section of the scarf incorporates short rows again and a reverse chevron, creating a mirror image of the first part of the scarf. Consider using scraps from previous fingering weight projects or even a self striping yarn for many less ends to weave!
