Chevron Blankets by Laurie Richardson

Hello there! It’s Tiffany here and I would like to share with you over 20 different chevron designs made by Laurie Richardson. 

Laurie is a member of the Daisy Farm Crafters Group and over the past year, she has been sharing her designs made with our chevron pattern. 

That pattern is so dear to me for two reasons, first, it took me forever it seems to learn how to make a chevron pattern!

(Seriously, I struggled and even wrote a post on everything I learned from that chevron!)

And two, it was one of the first blankets I made for a friend who had struggled with infertility for years and finally was pregnant. 

This is darling Reed, the miracle baby! And his chevron blanket I designed just for him.

I just love that Laurie has fallen in love with this pattern. I’ve emailed her to find out why she is so passionate about making chevron blankets, (she’s made over 50!) and here’s what she wrote:

“I’ve been an off and on knitter for many years, but always wanted to make a crochet chevron blanket. Growing up, my grandmother made so many for everyone in our families (some are still in our family after 40 years..and made with red heart yarn!)

When I saw your chevron (and your other gorgeous blankets on Pinterest) it was the closest to my grandmother’s pattern. Your directions were so easy to follow.

I also love the chevron because of the many different design and color combinations that are possible! I think that’s why I can’t stop making them!”

I hope you never quit Laurie! You have added so much beauty to the chevron pattern and inspired many in the group to create their own. I love that the very best about the Daisy Farm Crafter Group.

Did you know you are invited to join the Daisy Farm Crafters group and share what you have made from DFC patterns? We keep the group specific to just our patterns and questions about our patterns.

You’re able to ask questions from someone who has made the pattern before you or see all the different types of yarn and colors a particular pattern may have been made with. 

You can even ask Laurie, she is a super helpful person in the group to cheer you on as you make a chevron! 

We’ve made different versions of the chevron blanket too! You can see them all in the category chevron under our menu heading, (or just click those highlighted words, there’s a few ripple blankets included in that category.) 

And I’ll just end right here with one of my very favorite pictures of my niece, so cute and happy on the chevron blanket I made for her. 

Sending you all my love and thanks for following us here on the Daisy Farm! 

XO, 

Tiffany
