I needed a throw to bring my formal living room together. All the furniture in it is gray, except one chair is cream. I thought a gray and cream chevron blanket would tie it together nicely. After searching high and low for one, it occurred to me that I could just make what I wanted. Thus, I went to Hobby Lobby, which has a huge choice of colors, and bought the exact colors I wanted. I couldn’t just create a regular chevron blanket, I wanted to give it a more unique look. Thus, I decided to create chevrons of different sizes for the throw.
– 4 skeins of worsted weight yarn in color A.
– 4 skeins of worsted weight yarn in color B.
– Size J (6.0mm) Crochet Hook
48″ wide x 70″ long
ch = Chain
sp(s) = space(s)
st(s) = stitch(es)
Sl st = Slip Stitch
sk = Skip
sc = Single Crochet
hdc = Half Double Crochet
dc = Double Crochet
dc dec = Double Crochet Decrease
RS = Right Side
WS = Wrong Side
dc3tog – Double Crochet 3 Together: [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] 3 times (4 loops on hook), yarn over, draw through all loops on hook—2 stitches decreased.
To Change Color in Dc: Yarn over and draw up a loop in the last st of the row, yarn over and draw through 2 lps, drop the color in use; with next color to be used, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook. Continue with new color.
