Hello my crochet friends!
Be welcome, how much time has passed and I was a little absent because I was taking care of an aunt with covid-19, but today I return presenting this beautiful crochet blanket perfect with chevron details, as I am in love with her, things like that are not easy to find with the free step by step, but I found it and share with you the video tutorial along with graphics and the written pattern. As you are here it is very good crochet lovers I missed talking about crochet patterns and also exchanging ideas and learnings related to this art that is crochet. Crochet is an incredible thing that can change lives with depression, sadness and even discouraged people in life. Crochet is life that improves self-esteem and also health, I am living proof of this that after I entered this world of crochet I have become a better person and that is why I want to help you old crochet lovers and also who is starting this it's my fuel of self-esteem. Then we will not waste any more time and we will crochet this beautiful wonderful blanket. Follow the details below.
Finished size appx. 31 in x 31 in
3 Caron Simply Soft in White
1 Caron Simply Soft in Plum Wine
Size I (5.5 mm) Hook
Row 1: In the second chain from the hook and the next chain, SC2TOG. (insert your hook into the first chain, pull up a loop, insert your hook into the next chain, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all loops on your hook).
*SC in the next 13 chains, work 3 SC into the next chain, SC in the next 13 chains, skip 2 chains. repeat * (That means to repeat from where you see the *.) After you have worked the last 13 chains, you should have two extra. SC2TOG these last two stitches. Chain 1 and turn.
Row 2: Now, start the next row by SC2TOG, inserting your hook into the front loops only. (From now on you will always be working only into the front loop.) *Then work 13 SC, work 3 SC into the next stitch (this should be the middle stitch of the 3 SC you did in the row before), work 13 SC, skip two stitches at the bottom for the valley, and repeat *. After you have worked the last 13 chains, you should have two extra. SC2TOG these last two stitches. Chain 1 and turn.
Repeat ROW 2 for the remainder of the blanket. Always remember to SC2TOG when you end a row, and start a row. Always skip two stitches for a valley, always work 13 up each side. Always work 3 SC into one stitch for the peak. Always chain 1 and turn.
Now, here is how to work the color changes:
Start with 6 rows of White, then work *1 row Plum Wine, 1 row White, 1 row Plum Wine, 1 row White, 1 row Plum Wine, 1 row White, 1 row Plum Wine, 1 row White, 1 row Plum Wine. Work 7 rows White, then repeat from *. When you reach your desired length, end with 6 rows of White.
When you are changing colors, you want to pull through with the new color just before you finish the SC2TOG at the end of the row (you should have 3 loops on your hook when you pull through.) Then you’ll cut the yarn of the first color, leaving a tail long enough to weave in later.
(I ended up with 5 sets of stripes when I finished my blanket, but I think I had enough yarn leftover to do 6 sets of stripes if you want to make your blanket more rectangular than square.)
When you finish your blanket, tie off and weave in all your ends with a tapestry needle. If you’re not sure how to weave in ends, here is a quick video you can watch!
