For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: One 100g hank each of WYS Bluefaced Leicester Aran (100% Bluefaced Leicester wool, 166m/182yds per 100g) in shade A, shade B and shade C.
I used 02 Natural Light Brown for shade A, 03 Natural Brown for shade B and 01 Natural Ecru for shade C.
Tension: 20 stitches and 35 rows to 10cm/4ins square over pattern using 5mm needles.
Measurements: approx. 50cm x approx. 121cm.
My design ideas and advice: The chevron stitch pattern is one of my favourites because I love how this simple two row pattern, combined with a striped pattern, creates this amazing zig zag. It epitomises everything I love about knitting. Simple stitch, simple stripe, simply beautiful. You might find a few other of my patterns that use this stitch! This blanket was originally in my Knitted With Love book (out of print) and is now a single pattern.
