Changing Chevrons CAL – Week 5

Hello! Welcome back to Couch Surfer Crochet! We are now on Week 5 of the Changing Chevrons Crochet Along! I hope you all are enjoying this project as much as I am!

Before we get into the pattern today, I want to take a minute to say a sincere thank you to the members of the Couch Surfer Crocheters Facebook Group. Making a Chevron pattern has been much more challenging than anything I’ve done so far, and you have all been amazing during this process. I have posted a few mistakes in the pattern the last couple of weeks, and you all have been so nice and helpful while I get everything sorted! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This little website is my passion project, and I am so happy to share with all of you. Thank you for patience as we all figure this out together!

NOW, on to the fun stuff!
