The chevron is a V-shaped mark, often inverted, and commonly used in reference to architecture, or badges indicating rank or length of service in the military. It is a motif that has always generated a lot of interest in the world of crochet, because there are endless ways to vary it and use it in combination: the stripes can be steep or gentle, wide or narrow, alike or different. And the effect can be striking.
If you haven’t worked the chevron pattern before, here is a chance to create a colorful blanket that is both an approachable introduction to the motif and a rewarding result. In their book CRAZY FOR CROCHET, Lily Secilie Brandal and Bente Myhrer provide this rendition of the classic pattern—easy to follow or to modify to better suit your style or mood.
And for 70 more crochet projects you’ll love to make, take a look at the book CRAZY FOR CROCHET. Everything you need to get started crocheting is in this collection: clear, detailed guidance through the basics, dozens of helpful photographs, and patterns for every skill level, from scarves and blankets to socks and slippers, from hats and pillows to lampshades and clutches.
