Projects :: Chevron Crochet Pattern

Photobucket
Just a disclaimer before we go any further. I did not make up this pattern. It is from a 1973 crochet book called "The Easy Art of Ripple Crochet."

After mentioning the afghan I was working on a couple people were interested in the pattern so I though I would share it. Here goes!

Approximate Size: 42 x 60 inches
Materials:
Worsted weight - 16 oz A, 12 oz B, 12 oz C (for a three colour afghan) or
                          - 22 oz A, 18 oz B (for a two colour blanket)

Crochet Hook: J/6.00mm
Gauge: 3sc = 1 inch

Instructions for 3 Colours
With A ch 183, sc in 2nd st from hk, *1 sc in each of next 14 sts of ch, 3 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 14 sts of ch, skip 1 st, repeat from * across row ending with sc in last st, ch 1, turn.

2nd ROW: Working in back loop of sts throughout, sc in 1st sc, skip 1 st, *1 sc in each of the next 14 sts, 3 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 14 sts, skip 2 sts, repeat from * across row ending last repeat with skip 1 st, sc in last st, ch 1, turn.

Repeat 2nd row throughout working 4 more rows A, 6 rows B, 6 rows C. Repeat these stripes 6 times then work 6 rows A, cut yarn. Finish all ends.

A few notes: When I change colours I do so in the last sc of the row, right before the ch 1. I pull the first loop through with the original colour and then use the colour I'm changing to for the second loop.

Let me know if you have any questions! I'll try my best to help you out if you do.
