Crochet Be Mine Chevron Blanket
The Be Mine Chevron Blanket is the first of three new crochet baby blankets in a series.
It's a cold January and I wanted bright and fun to make myself feel warm. I love creating baby blankets the best. For whatever reason, when I started crocheting this one, I thought of those candy conversation hearts. Be Mine was always my favorite. I always wanted someone to pass me that one.
This repeating chevron can be easily sized with the multiples of 27 ch + 29. I crocheted this with Red Heart With Love because the colors are vibrant and it's squishy soft.
