In a sudden fit of “I absolutely must stashbust!”, I decided to crochet something small and colourful. Being utterly hopeless at doing colourwork (that actually looks good), I figured if it turned out completely awful, I could let the cat have it. And hopefully she would give me back a blanket or two. Greedy cat, she is.
So here’s where it’s at:
My cunning plan is to crochet enough to fold in half, cast off and cleverly do a ‘zip’ thing with the chevron edges. Of course, this plan may only work in my head and not in reality, but never mind – I’ll fake it somehow.
But wait! There’s more! Here’s the pattern for the Close Chevron Stitch:
Starting chain: multiple of 11 sts + 2
1st Row (RS): 2dc into 2nd ch from hook, *1dc into each of next 4ch, miss 2ch, 1dc into each of next 4ch, 3dc into next ch; rep from * ending last rep with 2dc only into last ch, turn.
2nd Row: 1ch, 2dc into 1st st, *1dc into each of next 4 sts, miss 2 sts, 1dc into each of next 4 sts, 3dc into next st; rep from * ending last rep with 2dc only into last st, miss turning ch, turn.
