If you are passionate about chevron then this blanket is for you! It features lots of texture and style. Worked in bulky weight yarn it works up quickly.
I love the softness of bulky weight yarns. And I love how they exaggerate even the simplest of textures. The super bulky weight yarn makes this texture pop!
This is only my second time working with a chevron stitch. I can remember a number of years ago trying my hand at a chevron blanket in a worsted weight yarn and although I enjoyed it I found it slow going and it took me a little bit to get the points to line up.
My experience with this one was much different. The Bulky weight yarn, while it meant that there were less stitches to count, also created a sturdier fabric. It was much easier to work with.
The Caron Chunky Cake yarn, which is self stripping, created some fabulous waves of colour (And less ends for me to ultimately weave in!). Of course, you may work this blanket in any super bulky weight yarn (#6 weight on label) and don’t be afraid to stitch up the colour so that it suits your own personal style!
At the end of this pattern you will find a link to a Companion tutorial for the Waves of Passion Throw as well as the multiples for your starting chain should you wish to change the dimensions of your blanket.
