The ripple of the chevrons is accented by rows of purl stitches. Vertical ladders separate the columns of chevrons. The look of this blanket can be changed by using different fibers and colors. The example is made with worsted weight cotton yarn.
|Size||Width (Inches)||Length (Inches)||Ounces of yarn||Yards of yarn|
Gauge: 20 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches in stockinette
Worsted weight yarn
Size 8 (5 mm) knitting needles
k = knit
p = purl
k2tog = knit two together
ssk = slip one knitwise, slip one knitwise, insert left needle into front of both slipped stitches and knit.
s2kp2 – slip2 (together, knitwise), k1, pass 2 slipped stitches over
The number of cast on stitches should be a multiple of 25 plus 6 .
Cast on these number of stitches for these widths:
33″ = 181
37.5″ = 206
42″ = 231
46.75″ = 256
51.25″ = 281
Repeat directions between ** across the row.
Row 1: p1, k1, p1, ** k2tog, k8, yo, k1, yo, s2kp2, yo, k1, yo, k8, ssk **, p1, k1, p1
Row 2: p1, k1, p1, ** k10, p5, k10 **, p1, k1, p1
Row 3: Repeat row 1
Row 4: p1, k1, ** p **, k1, p1
Row 5: Repeat row 1
Row 6: Repeat row 4
Row 7: Repeat row 1
Row 8: Repeat row 4
Row 9: Repeat row 1
Row 10: Repeat row 2
Repeat these 10 rows until blanket is desired length ending with a row 9. Cast off with an additional row of knit, finish off, secure and weave in end.
Make color changes before any row 1.
