Look What I Made: Chevron Crochet Blanket

crochet chevron blanket yellow white
It took me longer to decide on the pattern and colour scheme for this project than it did to actually make. Oh, the pressure! Oh, the self-imposed pressure to make a wedding present for one of my very best friends. The pressure to make something they love as much as I loved making it.  Oh, the commitment! Oh, the commitment it takes to start on such a big project. When you spend a fair bit of time with any crochet project it is preferable to love it. Of course I loved making this big, warm and cosy wool blanket. And of course I wanted to keep it for myself once it was done!

    Katie,

    Your blanket looks amazing! It has inspired me to try-out crocheting after many knitting projects.

    I purchased the babylovebrand chevron2.0 pattern linked in your post and have began my own project. I was curious if you made any pattern adjustments because your lines are sharper than the pattern instructions and it looks as if there are extra crochet stitches in-between the half granny squares at the beginning of the project.

    Any insight is appreciated. And thank you for posting your finished project.
    A new and inquisitive crocheter,
    Katy
