Changing Chevrons CAL – Week 7

This is Week 7 of the Changing Chevrons Crochet Along! Thank you for joining me on this project! Creating this pattern was really fun, and I love seeing all of your versions!


We’ve worked our way up to Row 77. This week we will be doing Rows 78 – 90! We’ve got ONE more week to go! I can’t believe it. If you’ve enjoyed this project, please share with all of your crafty friends! I’ve had a few people ask about making their blanket longer at the end. In the final pattern post I will share the sections that “I” think you should repeat to make this blanket longer. Of course as always, it’s totally up to you! If there was a particular section you really enjoyed, do that one! Anyway…on to this week’s pattern!

This has been such a fun project to create and share. We have 2 more weeks to go after this and then we will have a completed blanket! It’s been so cool to see all of your work. I’m now trying to think of what I would like to do for my next CAL. If any of you have a style or project you would like to try, let me know! I’m always up for a new challenge and I love to design new patterns.

I would love to see your progress and finished pieces. Half the joy of creating is sharing it! You can post your work here in the comments, on my Facebook page, or you can join the Couch Surfer Crocheters FB Group!
