Changing Chevrons CAL – Week 8

Congratulations! We have made it to the final section of the Changing Chevrons Crochet Along! Many of you have shared your progress in the Couch Surfer Crocheters Facebook group. It it always so fascinating to see one pattern recreated in so many different colors! After seeing all of your work I have found some new color combinations I want to try out!

I’ve had a few people express interest in making their blanket longer after this week. I will share a few ideas on how to do that at the end of this post.

Thank you for joining me on this Crochet Along! Crocheting is truly my passion, and I love to share with all of you! If you make something with this pattern I would love to see it! You can post your work here in the comments, on my Facebook page, or you can join the Couch Surfer Crocheters FB Group! If you are on Instagram and want to share there, please tag me @couchsurfercrochet.

If you want to continue on and make your blanket a little bit bigger, you will need to complete a few more sections. I would repeat them in this order personally, but as always this is a creative outlet, so feel free to repeat any of the sections that you prefer!

I would repeat Week 3, Week 5, and then Week 7. This will ensure that you don’t have any one section of your blanket that “matches.” It also helps avoid having two different stitches of the same color butting up against each other. If by chance you are turning this pattern into a scarf, and need to continue on even further, then go back and repeat Week 2, Week, 4, and Week 6.

I have designed this pattern to have the same first few rows and last few rows just for symmetry. If you want yours to be this way also, just make sure you finish your pattern starting with ROW 98 and completing through ROW 104.
