A Modern Chevron

My son and his wife 
just bought their first home
and I have been working on
a housewarming gift


A modern version of the 60's chevron
I love the way it turned out

I used this pattern
from All Things Bright and Beautiful


I used I Love This Yarn
from Hobby Lobby

And I do LOVE this yarn
Its so soft and cuddly
I got the pattern here

I even had enough yarn left over
to make a matching pillow


I used this chevron stitch
for the pillow and
added vintage buttons


After making so many other blankets
with lots of ends to weave in
this one was a breeze!!



Im having a hard time 
waiting until they move in
to give it to them
...less than a week…
I can do it!!

  5. Beautiful Ripple.... Wondering if this was done in back loops only as it seems to have a very appealing ridge to it?
    I Am new to your blog and love it!!!
