It's been so long since I've posted on any board! I joined Shop the Swap, and I guess it's just been sucking up all my time. Wink

Everyone who saw me knitting this thought the blanket was made with crochet. I guess because of the holes that the yarn overs created? I dont know, it looks pretty knit to me. I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease, which is 50% acrylic and 50% cotton. Im trying to shy away from full acrylic yarns, but I wanted this to be able to be tossed in the wash with whatever else I happen to be cleaning. The half cotton made it more pleasant to work with, I think. I used about 1.5 skeins of each color. I probably couldve made it a bit larger since I had some of each skein leftover, but I was tired of working on it so I decided I should probably just cast off. Im excited to have a blanket I made which is decently sized enough that I can use it, and I really like the colors (even though the yarn I used was just pulled from my stash).

The pattern is here, if anyone wants to give it a go. Its a very, very simple pattern that gives a pretty stylish result. I memorized it pretty quickly and worked away on the blanket while watching movies.

wow, I really like it!  The colours look awesome together, but I never would have thought to put them together.  Really pretty!

The chevron stitch pattern is used in a lot of crocheted afghans, where it's called the ripple pattern. I think that's why people thought it was crochet. Good job!

this is pretty! i have a tendency to not pay as close attention as i should thus making all my chevron stitch blankets come out crooked. what size needles did you use? i'm tempted to try another!

a pile of shit has a thousand eyes.

Hmm, I'm pretty sure I used the needles recommended in the pattern, size 9. You should definitely try it, I loved this pattern.
