The Calming Chevron Knit Blanket Pattern creates a beautiful piece of knitting to show off in your home. It will be gorgeous folded over the back of the couch and cozy for your lap. Unlike a lot of chevron patterns, this blanket pattern uses soft neutral colors, which allows for greater relaxation and calm. But, if you are looking for a bit of pizzazz, you can always replace the colors with bright, popping ones. It is completely up to your creative impulse. Get your needles ready!

I love chevron patterns and this blanket or throw is a really nice one. The pattern is not hard to do and the color combinations work very well with the big sections broken up by the smaller sections in brown. Although the brushed Dreamy yarn is nice, I'm sure you could substitute almost any worsted weight yarn and it would still look good.
