Crochet blanket pattern - Chevron Flare comes in Baby to King Size

You will need this crochet blanket pattern because once you try it, you’ll want to make this time and time again. Not only is the chevron visually appealing, but this texture is to die for and I am already planning a king size throw with it. With this texture, a neutral, solid color throw would be divine. Take a look for yourself!

Crochet blanket pattern – Chevron Flare

I’m seriously falling in love with chevron again, but the texture in my Chevron Flare blanket is what is really doing it. If you don’t know how to do ribbing, this is the perfect time to learn. If you do know how to do ribbing, you will not be more pleased with the effect! Note that this is a FREE crochet pattern complete with a sizing guide for Baby blanket (30” L x 24” W) up to King (76” W x 80” L), yarn amount suggestions.
