Chevron Baby Blanket – the purl bee


This is the most fabulous website:

Whit’s Knits: Chevron Baby Blanket

“If you lived through the 60s and 70s perhaps you have vivid memories of a chevron afghan. Perhaps you appreciated it at the time; were indifferent to it in the 80s; despised it in the 90s; and have developed a deep affection for it over the past decade, itchy acrylic, zany colors and all!

“This knitted Chevron Baby Blanket makes some accommodations both for modernity and for babies. Instead of hard-to-cuddle acrylic, this 100% cotton blanket is as deep and soft and cozy as a cloud. And instead of fast food orange and kitchen appliance avocado, this version is a delicate spectrum of natural colors just right for babies!”

via Chevron Baby Blanket – the purl bee.

So, I just had to share this fabulous and easy knit chevron baby blanket.  Use the link or the photo to get the pattern for this classic beauty.  I love it!  So simply elegant.  My goal is a throw size for the sofa to snuggle up with.

    Oooh I love it too. I love the colours. Lime green is my favourite anyway. I’ve already printed off the pattern! Thank you.
