I first picked up a crochet hook in March of 2011. My friend had just had a beautiful baby girl named Megyn, and had named me the godmother. I was looking for something to fill my time as a stay-at-home-wife, and realized that not only could I find something constructive to do with my time, I could make my goddaughter beautiful things at the same time. My mother bought me my first hook, and my first skein of yarn, showed me the simple chain stitch-and after that I taught myself how to become a master-hooker. My first ever creation was a baby blanket for Megyn, and everything else just took off from there. I started making hats, headbands, and booties, and I was "hooked" lol! In the year since I started I have made a small business for myself selling my items and now, my patterns. I realized that I could not only sell my finished items, I could sell the patterns I made up to make those items!View all patterns by designer (35) »
I absolutely LOVE chevron. I also LOVE granny stitch blankets. So I decided to combine the two to create this amazingly simple and beautiful blanket, which has now become my go-to blanket when someone is having a baby. Great for craft shows, as a photography prop, and completely customizable depending on colors used, rows used, and variations described in the pattern!
This pattern not only details how to make this gorgeous blanket in baby size, it also includes instructions for a Toddler, Child, Throw, or Twin sized blanket! Make one for each member of the family, sell them at craft shows, or give them as gifts! Photographers and new moms will be knocking down your door trying to get their hands on this blanket!!
You will need to know how to chain, and triple/treble crochet. You will need a size I (5.5mm) crochet hook. The size J hook is optional, but used for the starting chain. You will need scissors, a yarn needle, a measuring tape, and worsted weight yarn in as many colors (but at least 2) as you would like! This pattern is not just written-but also comes with detailed pictures to help explain the instructions, and an instructional video on how to make a triple crochet!
As always, I welcome and encourage you to sell items made from my patterns-but please include a link to my pattern store, and don't use any of my pictures. A BIG thank you to my tester Lisa, from www.loveknots2.etsy.com for helping me with this pattern!
