Chevron Crochet Blanket Pattern - Goodstuff Mama I am so excited about this Chevron Crochet Blanket pattern. My mom tried to teach me to crochet when I was younger, I remember her trying to be proud of me, but all I could do one a single chain – still I’d make that single chain as long as I could – if you wrap it around yourself enough times, it becomes a scarf.

Chevron blanket free crochet pattern I wrote previously about how I frogged a jumper I had knitted and was going to make it into a chevron blanket. When I looked back to find the post I discovered it was quite some time ago, December 2012, so the blanket should be finished. It is almost finished, I just have to sew in the ends.

The Thumb Trick: Sometimes called an afterthought thumb, I first read about it in Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac. I really like this method because it's seamless; sometimes when patterns have you place stitches on a holder and then cast on the top stitches you can get an odd seam right in the crease where your thumb meets the hand, and that can be uncomfortable. The only trouble that some people may have with this method is that you cannot immediately try on your mitten in progress, as you can with mittens where the stitches are put on holders. But if you want to you can just knit a few more rows and then pick up the stitches instead of waiting until the mitten is done, threading the waste yarn through them so you can try on your mittens as you knit.
