There are many different chevron/ripple/zigzag blanket patterns out there. After looking for one to make this blanket, I learned why!
I had my colors all picked and ready to go. They were leftover from a hat I made and loved the way they looked together so much I wanted to use the leftovers for something special. The yarn is Red Heart Soft in Chocolate, Grape, Berry and Rose Blush. I also used this yarn for the Ripple blanket I made a while back, which is quite similar. I love the stretch and feel this yarn has.
As for the pattern.. after quite a few tries with different patterns, I just wasn’t getting the exact thing I wanted. I ended up using a pattern similar to the one I found for my Chevron scarf, but instead of SC into each stitch, I SC into the BLO every row. Here’s a quick link to that pattern here. I used a J Hook and tried to crochet a little loosely to give it more stretch and airiness.
I did 10 rows of each color before changing and 3 sections of each sequence. I’ve been wanting to make a classic looking chevron blanket for a while and I love how this one turned out! Hope you enjoyed 🙂
