Rich Kids Chevron Blanket
You will 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 also be divine. A video walk-through is embedded at the bottom of the page and available to help you with the details of how to work the crochet border pattern.
Here is a closeup of my Lovey Shells and Chevrons crochet pattern which shows just how it looks in solid. I love it!

Linked quad treble (lqtr): Working into a ch 4, pull up a loop in back bump of 2nd ch from hook and in back bump of each of next 2 chs, insert hook in indicated st and pull up a loop (5 loops on hook), [yo and pull through 2 loops on hook] 4 times.

(A, B, C, D, B, D, E, C, D, B, D, A, D, C, B, D, E, D) repeated, ending anywhere in the sequence, followed by 2 rows of A.
The border colors shown are:
Rnd 1: C

This sequence uses 550 yds of D, and 225 yds of each of the other colors for a Lapghan size blanket.
