Happy Fall! Now that it’s September 1st I can say that, right? I don’t know about you but I am definitely getting into the spirt of the Fall season over here and decorating has begun! One of my favorite Fall Holiday shows is “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.” Such a classic! And when I saw the beautiful Gold and Black O’Go yarn colors next to each other, it made me think of Charlie Browns shirt!
When I set out to make a chevron striped blanket, I thought it would be a simple. But then I realized most chevron crochet blankets start out a with a zig-zag and then continue it throughout the entire piece. Very rarely would you ever see one stripe of chevron among rows of straight single crochet stitches. So I had my work cut out for me. After several days of frogging and re-crocheting, I think I got the stitch count perfected for the chevron!
The bulk of the blanket (like I mentioned) is straight rows of single crochet stitches. The only time you will switch up stitches and get a little fancy is when you are making the chevron. I am going to post the written pattern and then when I figure out how to make a smaller sample, I will film a tutorial for my YouTube Channel. I do not have a stitch count for a larger or smaller blanket at the moment.
– Red Heart Super Saver O’Go Yarn in color Gold and Black. You will need 3 of the gold O’Go’s and one of the black.

Any recommendations for modifying this for use with Jumbo (7) yarns and finger crochet styles? I think the pattern would probably hold up but I’m terrible at estimating stitch counts.
