Chevron Baby Afghan Pattern

March 11, 2012

Some of my favorite afghan ideas have come from All Things Bright and Beautiful.  She has adorable patterns and ideas, and I love it.  One of my favorites was her Chevron Afghan.  Wonderful, easy pattern.  I wanted to alter it a bit and make a smaller baby afghan for a friend of mine, for her baby shower.

Honestly, I’m not a pattern designer, at all.  However, after at least an hour of testing chain numbers, this is what I got to work.  I love how it turned out, and am pleased.  It seems so tiny, but babies are tiny when they first get here. I’m also accompanied this gift with this hat in the perfect size for the appropriate season.  :)  You see, my friends husband is a HUGE BYU fan, and so, they get a BYU baby blanket, and a hat to go with the best NCAA sport.  :)  

Chevron Baby Afghan 
*Pattern from All Things Bright and Beautiful, altered for a much smaller size.

Chain 122
Row 1: SC in 2nd ch from hook.  *SC in next 14 ch sp, 3 sc in next ch sp, sc in next 14 ch sp, skip next st* across, ending with the sk 1 st, sc in last st, ch 1 and turn.
Row 2: Working in back lp of sts throughout, sc in first sc, sk 1 sc, *sc in each of next 14 scs, 3 sc in next sc, sc in each of next 14 sts, sk 2 sts, repeat from * across, ending last repeat with sk 1 st, sc in last st, ch 1, turn.
Repeat Row 2 throughout.  Working 5 rows of white, 5 rows of blue, alternating.  I did 15 total rows, 8 blue, 7 white.
Edging:  SC around in each side stitch, and following the above pattern on the chevron sections (top and bottom).  Finish off, and weave in ends.
Finished afghan measures: H: 30 inches x W 22 inches

    Ms C and Miss E, you should! I bet if you Google searched you could find a free knitting pattern for something similar?

    Ameryn, I plan to make a bigger one as well. I’m excited to make it. The pattern that I posted I believe is just a regular size afghan. Enjoy!

    Oh wow, this is gorgeous. I have been afraid to try the chevron or ripple patterns,…maybe I should after all — too gorgeous. Thanks so much for sharing at our party this week.

      It does seem tricky and scary, but honestly, once I started going, it was so easy. Just a lot of counting, but just sc and skipping stiches. You should TOTALLY try. Try the baby pattern first if you’re too scared to do a full size. I have intentions of making a full afghan later this year with the pattern I linked to. I’m a bit scared, but only of how long it’ll take, lol.

      Oh, and I did start a ripple pattern before this, because I didn’t notice it was rippple, and it was super easy too. Same idea, but the stitch order is sightly different. :)

      Let me know if you ever try either one. I’d love to see how it turns out!

    Wow! I love this! It would be such a hit at a baby shower! I’ll be linking it up to my FB page sometime in the next couple days!

    Thanks for linking it up @ Creatively Living!

    You know that sad person who knows how to crochet but doesn’t know the names or understand what any of the stitches mean? That’s me. BUT I love this so much I am determined to find out what SC and LP and the rest of the letter soup mean. Love it!

      Megan, that’s so flattering!! Google is my best friend when I don’t know a stitch. It really isn’t super hard once you get the lingo down. :) Let me know if you have any questions. You can e-mail me and I’m more than happy to help.

      Kathy, I think I used either an I hook. The full size pattern that I downsized this from, used an I, and since I hadn’t written patterns before this one, I probably just stuck with what she used in hers. I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions about it.
