My grandfather liked to say that paisley was his favorite color. Well, chevron is my paisley. I’m partial to anything with that zig-zag pattern, especially blankets. When my grandparents were moving out of their house, I snagged this vintage chocolate, tan and cream chevron throw hand knit by my grandmother. If we’re being honest here, it’s not the softest blanket, but it keeps me cozy when my office gets chilly. Plus, I’m a sucker for anything sentimental.
If I knit, I would make this chevron baby blanket from Purl Bee for my little Levi (and then I would borrow it from him). I adore the simplicity of its design and the cool hues of its quiet color palette. This definitely looks like a throw that Baby Guy could snuggle up in.
Tell me, do you knit or crochet? What have you handmade for your wee ones?
