This blanket is super cute. I love how the chevron turned out.
looks great! what kind of yarn did you use?
Cassandra,Thanks! I used a medium weight yarn....not quite sure of the brand. It was one that I have only seen at Michaels for about 3.99.
This is gorgeous! I want to learn how to do a chevron blanket as soon as I finish up my other crochet (and knitting) projects. Any secrets?
Thanks so much for posting the link to this pattern! I've been looking for a chevron crochet pattern for a long time. :)I just found your blog via Pinterest and I love your style! Thanks for the great crafts and inspiration! <3
Hi....I saw this on Pinterest and love it!!! I have a question though.....I know it's not your pattern but since you've made it I figured you could help. On the very first Row after the chain 205 it says to skip 1 chain, then do 1 SC in next two chains. then its says this "inserting crochet hook in horizontal thread in back of ch st; sk 1 st;" ........huh? So confused. Your help would be great!!! Thanks!!
Skip the chain closest to the hook, single crochet as normal through the next two chains and then, skip one of the back horizontal stitches and work the rest of the pattern in the other horizontal back stitches. I hope that helped!
Im thinking the horizontal stitch part might be whats confusing to some... its the back part of the chain there is a bar, if you crochet in that bar you get a very nice edging.
What stitch did you use to border the blanket?
I used a single crochet;)
Hi Melissa,I just did a Google search for Chevron Crochet patterns and your black & white blanket showed up. I loved it so much, you've inspired me to make one for myself. I was wondering how many stitches did you chain to begin with?Thank you!
actually, it looked bigger than a baby's blanket, so i assumed that you added extra stitches. sorry :)
Hi Melissa,Since the pattern you used calls for more colors, and I want to make it black and white, how many rows of each color did you use?Thanks
Hi Lori:) I just substituted black for each different color in the pattern and kept the white rows the same. I hope that answered your question. Good luck!
How much yarn did you use for the black nd white chevron blanket?
I used about three bundles of yarn per color (so about 6 all together)...and each bundle was 260 yds of yarn:)
i cant find the pattern?
The pattern is in the link "this pattern" that I highlighted in yellow.
How large did you make your blanket and how many did you chain to start it?
I made it in a baby size. I followed the pattern in the link exactly since I didn't know how to alter it to make it larger.
Well if i can figure out how to make it larger i will share my info with you :)
This is perfect for my best friend's baby room! Can you tell me how many skeins of yarn you used to make this? Thanks for sharing!
I used 3 skeins of each color...each skein being about 250 yds. Hope that helps!
Question on the pattern: after finishing the first two rows, it says to repeat row 2 for the remainder of the quilt. Are you supposed to ch 1 before turning to row three? Or do you just turn without ch 1? Thanks!
I chained one before turning each row;)
I love this so much! Yours looks a little bigger than the one on the pattern, what size hook did you use? And would you call this a beginner's pattern or intermediate? Thanks!
I think I used a 5mm...sorry I can't remember for sure! My blanket was a little bigger than the original. I would call this an intermediate just because it took me a while to figure out the pattern. It was simple once I got the hang of it, but it did take more concentration than a simple crochet pattern.
How many rows did the blanket end up having all together?
Does anyone know how to increase the size of the blanket? The 205 foundation chain just did not see long enough :( I am having trouble figuring out the multiple to determine how long to make the foundation chain. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
Sorry, I don't know how to increase the size. The blanket will stretch a bit more as you work it, making it a little larger than the starting chain.
Would you consider selling it?
I gifted this blanket for my friend's new baby and I don't have the time to make and sell them right now. Sorry;)
This is gorgeous! What kind of yarn did you use?
I am not sure if I can get my picture to show or not, but I made this pattern for my niece. I made it a little over 5 feet long, but it is more narrow than I would have liked. For the people who are asking to make the pattern larger, where it says repeat from (*) 7 times, you should make that 8 or larger, and then just pick back up with the directions. Then you can just keep adding rows to the bottom to make it as long as you would like. This was my first attempt at a chevron pattern, so it took me until the second or third row to get the hang of it. I love how it turned out! Thanks again for the pattern!!
did you figure out how many more beginning chains to add to make it longer?
did you figure out how many beginning chains to add to make it longer?
Melissa, would this pattern be something a first timer could do?
Jenny, I would describe this pattern as somewhat intermediate. it is simple once you have the first few rows down, but it does take a little more concentration.
