The Feathered Chevron Blanket
Fast forward two months. My other projects were done and it was finally time to sit down and try this out. I could sit here and go into all of the little details on what I tried first, what didn’t work and so on and so on but I will skip all that boring stuff. The point is that it took some trial and error but it made the final result that much sweeter.
Today I am here to share the final result with you. This pattern can work up in so many ways with so many color combos that I think you are just going to love it! I would love to see how you decide to work it up and with what colors. Use the hashtag #9603makers so that I can see all of your beautiful blankets or add a project to the pattern in Ravelry.
Before I share the pattern with you, I want to include that this is also available in a pdf version in my Etsy and Ravelry shop (clink button above). Why pay for a pattern that is free you ask. The paid pattern comes with a printer friendly pdf and a screen friendly pdf that are both easy to read and full of pictures to help you as you crochet. You will also receive a link to a full video tutorial on Youtube. It is well worth the small fee to get all of the extra help for the pdfs and video can offer.
Before I ramble on too much more, let’s get into the pattern!

-You must be able to carry your yarn in order to crochet this blanket, but have no fear! It is simple. Carrying your yarn means that one must hold the color of yarn that they are not using really close to the previous row in order to crochet over it.
-The yarn you are crocheting over can sometimes bunch up. You may want to give it a slight tug before changing colors to make for a smoother look. Make sure you don’t pull too tight or that will give your piece and bunched look as well.
In MC-Chain 114 (Baby Blanket) or 226 (Throw)

the beginning chain.)
