Our County Fair is at the end of this month and I think I've finally found the perfect thing to take and enter. (Yes, I'm already nervous!) When I first started considering working with the Basket Weave stitch, I wanted something completely unique from what was out there. It seems like everything is always worked in straight rows and I HAVE to be different! I've been obsessed with Chevron designs lately and thought "How cool would this combo be?!" When I designed my Basket Weave Chevron Afghan crochet pattern, I was amazed with myself. I did it!!! Woo Hoo :) I originally just made a small prop size blanket because I thought the texture would be amazing for photos. When that was finished, I knew I HAD to make a throw size blanket for myself and boy am I glad I did...
It took a while to complete because I would set it aside to work on other new patterns and I've updated 9 of my oldest patterns during that time too. When I fastened it off, I just wanted to sit and snuggle with it and stare at it. I typically design afghans for other people, but this one, I think will be mine. (I deserve to treat myself to something now and then, right?) I used Caron Simply Soft for this design so that it would be a lighter weight and more flexible than other thicker yarns with the Basket Weave stitch and it was a great choice.
