Z is for Zigzag

Welcome to my final post in the A-Z Of crochet series. I thought I’d finish off with a kind of cop out post, because Z isn’t a very popular letter! I’ve seen some beautiful chevron  (zigzag!) blankets and thought I’d give it a go. This one is made using Ice Yarns and a 4.5mm hook. It is (or rather, will be) cot bed sized and I’m loving how the yarn is working up into these stripes. The tutorial I’m using is another Bella Coco one. I am an impatient soul and when I saw it was made entirely in double crochet (US single) I very nearly searched for a new pattern as I wanted it finishing quickly. I’m glad I didn’t as although it’s not a tall stitch, it does work up very quickly. I’ve done all of this since last Tuesday, though I need to slow down as the rest of the yarn for the project is stuck at customs in Turkey. 

Well, that’s all folks, thanks for following my A-Z. I guess it’s time for me to go and think of more things to blog about now!

Have you ever made anything using chevrons? What was it? And have you got any positive stories about yarn coming through customs without massive charges to stop me from worrying?

(Thankfully my next load has arrived safely!)

I’m linking this up to Wool on Sundays with Janine @Rainbow Hare (even if it is Tuesday!)

    1. Thank you, they are such lovely colours aren’t they. In real life they are slightly softer, like bright colours that have had a dusting of icing sugar to tone them down slightly. It’s certainly not going to fade into the background of mess when it does get to the kids room!

  1. This is beautiful. I really like how pointy the zig zag is and I love the yarn you’re using. I hope it doesn’t take long for the rest to arrive. And I’m sorry you’ve got to the end of the alphabet. I’ve really enjoyed your series πŸ™‚

    1. It’s Ice Yarns magic lights, bought through Yarn Paradise on Ebay and shipped from Turkey. The delivery times aren’t too bad and it’s reasonably priced. Thanks for your lovely comments. 😊

  2. Your new project looks wonderful! I do lots of knitted chevron things but one day I must try crocheted ripples. I’m hearing lots about that Ice yarn and how lovely it looks made up. So the customs hold up is the Turkey ‘end’?
