Chevron Baby Blanket

4 Comments

When I found a good friend of mine was having a baby I KNEW I wanted to make a baby blanket. When I found out it was a boy, well then I went on the search for an idea that wasn’t too ‘girly’. My friend has a love of chevron, so I opted to go with a traditional crocheting look, with a bit of a twist:

I never was a huge fan of the way that chevron blankets were usually finished off with the zig zag edge to them, but thanks to the pattern I found on the Eat, Knit & DIY blog HEREĀ I now had instructions on how to fill in the ends to make it a regular rectangular blanket. This is a great pattern for a crocheter looking to attempt their first baby blanket as the pattern itself is very simple and repetitive compared to many that we see. I highly suggest that every crocheter needs to make a chevron blanket, lap blanket, baby blanket or some variation on this pattern at some point in their crocheting life!

The colours were an easy choice after getting a glimpse of his nursery, and off I went. The result was a simple but fun blanket which is going to fit in too perfectly! I have shown her a picture already, but was still beyond estatic as I dropped it off at the post office to make its trip to her in the US!

Have you made any gifts lately that you just couldn’t wait to send? Please share your photos and stories either as a comment here on our our Facebook page HERE.

  1. Great finished blanket. I love the wavey apttern.

  2. I love the non-zig-zag border! Very clever.
