I fell in love with the chevron pattern for a baby blanket in my last pregnancy, but never could make it work. I wrote this one myself with some hints from others who have used this particular yarn before. I don't work with acrylic yarn much, but this was a delight! Knitpicks Bulky Brava. I wish I would have chosen the orange instead of the green, but it was too late by the time it arrived. It seems large, but it is really just draped over the sewing machine- quite small- 3 skeins exactly.
