I love knitting in stripes, and for ages I wanted to master the knack of knitting chevron stripes but every pattern I tried didn't really work out how I wanted it to - and there's only so many times you can pull out row after row without giving up entirely.

But I'm glad I persevered and found this lovely blankie pattern which works out just fine..and the chevrons look really pretty.

This is knitted in a lovely purple and pink mix and was just the right size for 
baby Isabella.

This colour combination looks bright and cheerful for Spring

I recommend making the pattern as easy as possible, so try using self patterned wool which knits up in a remarkably short time, and there are fewer fiddly bits to weave in afterwards.

These two blankies are knitted in Wizz Aran and really do pattern like magic !
