Flat Chevron Blanket

It’s been a bit since I’ve gotten a pattern completed and ready to post! It’s been busy, busy these last few months! The kids and I were preparing for my husband to get home from deployment and he’s FINALLY home safe and sound! ❤️ Now that he’s on R&R, we can all finally relax and I was finally able to get this pattern finished!

I wanted to make a chevron blanket, but I didn’t want to do the same old, same old chevron blanket, so I decided to filet it! This blanket is worked in simple, flat rows instead of the traditional up and down rows you normally find. I kept the border simple so that it didn’t take away from the blanket center. I thought that if so did something lacy, like I normally do, the blanket would all get muddled together.

Speaking of the border, Row 1 of the border may seem tedious and unnecessary, but trust me and power through it because the end results are fantastic and you’ll never start a border the same again!

  1. If I wanted to make a larger version, what is the amount of stitches I would need to increase at a time in order to keep with the pattern? Ty

  2. Hi Courtney, This is a lovely blanket. Could you please tell me what the multiple is so I could make it wider? Thanks very much. Barbara Ann.
