Vintage Chevron Stripes...

Vintage Chevron Stripes in shades of blue make 
this a striking baby blanket.

A perfect size for a baby car seat / carrier

24 x 22 inches (61 x 56 cms)

This pattern has been around for ages and I can remember my mother knitting chevrons in the 1960s .
I think it still looks really striking.

 Once you get the rhythm of knitting the chevrons, this is a really easy blanket to make.

It would work well in bold or pastels colours.

This is knitted in an easy wash and care acrylic Double Knitting weight wool, but it would also work well in super soft baby wool.

You can make it longer by adding more chevrons.
