Chevron knitting – baby style! I found this pattern for a beautiful baby blanket in a chevron design and decided to give it a go. The zigzag effect quickly emerged after the first few rows and I am really enjoying knitting it in cotton yarn.

It’s easier than it looks. It is just requires making sure you count the stitches as you go across the row to maintain the design, but apart from that, it is the same pattern for the whole blanket.

For the photo, I have teamed it with the beautiful book PEEK-A-BOO by Janet and Allan Ahlberg – one of my childrens’ favourites.
