I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.

    In the 12th row it seems like the * section should include the FPdc, otherwise the hdc3tog doesn’t end up lining up with the valley everytime. Am I wrong?

      I’m struggling with row 12 as well. I’ve pulled out and started over four times already because it wasn’t lining up correctly. This last attempt, I thought I was close to the mark until near the end where I now have four stitches remaining. I’m not sure what I did wrong or what to do to fix it. Like the above post, I struggled to land in the valley at the proper time. Everything was even until row 12. This is my first chevron project, so I’m learning a lot through trial and error. Does anyone have a count of how many stitches should be at the end of each row?
      Melynda, Did adding the FPDC to each section solve the issue for you?

        On row 12 I included the FPdc in the repeat sequence and it seems to have worked for me. like this:

        *FPdc in next st, (hdc in next
        st, FPdc in next st) 4 times, hdc3tog, (FPdc in next st, hdc in
        next st) 4 times, FPdc in next st,** 3 hdc in next st; rep from *
        3 more times…

        I have not checked out the revisions she’s made yet, but as the blanket is nearly done I figured I should keep what I was doing consistent. I wish it had a diagram with it as I always find it easier to have those with the written pattern. I do love how its turned out though! I added a small border on mine 🙂

          Good morning! I am having the same issue and added the FPdc in the next stitch after the peak, which made everything line up. When I get to the end of the row, however, I am not ending with a FPdc prior to the 2 hdcs in the last stitch. Did that happen to you or did it all line up by the end and make both ends symmetrical? I appreciate any feedback you have at this point as it sounds like you are well into the project. I love it but am frustrated with this one row :-).

    I love this pattern, and the stitch. Am I counting wrong, tho? When I follow the directions, I end up with 6 stitches left at the end. When i skip 3 instead of 2 it works better. Please help tell me what I’m doing wrong.
