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.
