Crochet Chevron Blanket

My first review of this chevron crochet afghan was back in March of this year.  I made that one for myself, but this one was a Christmas gift for my daughter.  I must admit that I rather selfishly considered keeping this one, as I am so pleased with the color combination.  But no, I did not keep it lest I wouldn't have a handmade gift for DD.  I always try to include at least one handmade item in her gifts.

The pattern is a free one from here.  I used a size I crochet hook, and the following Red Heart brand worsted weight yarn colors: 
  • Grey Heather (3 skeins)
  • Lemon (2 skeins)
  • Cherry Red (1 skein)

Now doesn't that look warm and comfy amidst all that cold snow!?
