Repeat row 3 throughout, working 8 more rows white, 10 rows of next color, 10 rows next color, 10 rows starting color, 10 rows second color, etc
Have you ever started a project and then once you realize how much time it is really going to take, you kind of wish you wouldn’t have??? That was totally how I felt with this crocheted chevron afghan. While I love it, and I am glad I completed it, it will be a LONG time before I do another!! I found a pattern for this on Pinterest and had to make it! I loved the colors she used, but I wanted to use the grey instead of the red since I am on a grey and yellow kick right now;) There are a few mistakes, but I am totally over it. I was not about to rip it out and start over! It’s only for us so I am fine with it.

My grandmother would be so proud of me!! She used to make these all the time for family members, and I do not have a clue why anyone would do more than one ever in their life time:) They take forever!! Definitely worth it, but wow! Maybe IF I do another, I will do it in the winter time because having this heavy blanket on me while completing each row is very warm!! The hubs loves it and used it last night and it covers him up (he’s 6’2″) so that’s probably why it took so long. I wanted to be sure that it would fit on him because all of our blankets only go so far on him and it’s a bit annoying because then he hoards all of the blankets!! :)

  1. I love this so much I’m thinking of making one myself… Is the number of chains for making a baby blanket or adult blanket?

  2. Hi. What size hook do I use? Thanks! :)

  3. I want make this pattern for a bedspread – queen pillow top so I like a spread slightly on the wider side of a typically full/queen. I can handle figuring out length, but it’s the width I don’t know. My current bedspread is 82 inches wide and I’d like the chevron afghan to be about the same. Do you have any suggestions on how many chains to get this desired width?

    What materials do I use and what size hook do I need? I would like to make one for my daughter’s sofa.

    Thank you
