Blanket measures: 64 x 74 (yours may very slightly based on your gauge)
Use 3 skeins of each color, I used the Bernat Blanket yarn but you can substitute with any other chunky yarn that is comparable! Each large skein of the Bernat yarn is 258 yards, so you will need the equivalent of another size 6 yarn.
dc = yarn over, insert your hook, yarn over, pull through, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on the hook, yarn over, pull through remaining loops on the hook
Begin with a slip knot
Chain 96 (make sure the foundation chain isn’t too tight)
dc (double crochet) in the 3rd chain from the hook.
dc in each stitch for a total of 8 (the turning chain does not count)
skip 2 chains
8 dc (1 in each chain) and then dc 3 (3 double crochets in the same stitch) repeat until the end…
At the end of the row, you need an extra dc stitch. So you will have 8 plus 1 extra. chain 2 and turn your work.
dc in the first stitch and repeat.
Continue until you run out of yarn and cannot complete another section. Fasten off and weave in the ends with the yarn needle.
Enjoy your blanket!

Hey! I was wondering if you could make this for a baby blanket?

I made this blanket for my sisters baby and it turned out pretty good. The only think I wasn't perfectly pleased with was the chevron part that curved down (not the one where you dc 3x) ended up being very "loopy". Any ideas what I could change / fix to keep this from happening as badly?

Have you washed your blanket? Did the black bleed?

Love this project! I want to alter for a baby blanket with the same yarn, but I don't know what the correct number would be to chain to get started. Please advise!
