Ooohhh Chevrons…

A chevron is like a ’54 Chevy Bel Air… beautiful, timeless and I must have it

Who doesn’t love a good chevron?  To be honest, I only recently found out they were called “chevrons” (thank you, again, Pinterest).  Before that, they were just “the little sharp mountain-lookin’ thingies.”

There are tons and tons and tons of Chevron Blankets on Pinterest.  Now, do you think I would have actually pinned the pattern I was using?  Well, if so, thank you… but you’re giving me far too much credit.

Note to Self: When starting a pattern, ALWAYS pin it for reuse!  Otherwise, when you decide to take a month or two break from your blanket… ripping out a few rows to remember the pattern is required. *face palm*

Anyhow, all of that aside, I’m pretty excited about my chevron blanket.

I’m so close to completing it that I can almost taste it!  But I won’t.  Because that’s gross (even if you are keeping it for yourself).

For yarn, I used the Lion Brand Hometown USA brand in Fort Lauderdale Coral, Miami Seafoam, New York White and Dallas Grey.

I used a nice big N (10.00mm) hook, which still resulted in a very thick blanket (a larger hook could be used for looser/airy stitches).

The grey and white are accent chevrons (1 row for grey, 3 rows for white), while coral and seafoam were the main event (6 rows per chevron).

I rarely make things for myself, but this one ain’t goin’ nowhere.
