Well, I just finished crocheting another chevron blanket. This was a custom order for a baby blanket in shades of pink and purple.
I love the way this baby blanket turned out!
It is made with seven different colors of Vanna's Choice yarn from Lion Brand.
It measures 37"x46", which I believe is a great baby blanket size. It is not too big to be carried around, and it is big enough to still be used into the toddler years.
The pattern I used for this blanket is the Fans and Feathers Ripple from the book "The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet". This book is still one of the best resources for crochet, in my opinion. There are so many wonderful patterns and ideas; I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves to crochet.
I squared off the ends using a mix of sc, hdc, dc, tr, 2trtog, dtr, 2dtrtog. I finished it off by a simple round of hdc to border the entire blanket.
The blanket only took me a little over a day from start to finish, so I didn't get too many progress shots. But, I did snap a few photos.
Of course, real time progress can always be followed on my @chirpinbirdie Instagram feed.
I have made a few other blankets with this same pattern in the recent past.
This blue and green ripple is still available in my Etsy shop. If you are interested, you can click on the tab above.
This one sold out from my Etsy shop already. This blue and orange is still one of my favorite color schemes, and I would be so happy to crochet with these color again.
This pink and green baby blanket is also available in my Etsy shop still.
