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?
Edited to add a photo of the yarn for Renee at So Craftastic.
(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!)
