Starting Instructions – If Starting From Scratch

Either choose a project size above or use a customized calculation for your starting chain counts.

  1. Chain the desired width that is listed above.
  2. Dc 4th chain from hook (Chain and dc counts as 2 dc in the same stitch), 1 dc in each next 5 ch. *Dc3tog using the next three chains (bottom of chevron). 1 dc in each of the next 12 chains. 3 dc in the next chain (top of chevron). 1 dc in each of next 12 chains. Repeat from * across until the last 9 chains remain. The final ending of row is dc3tog using the next three chains. 1 dc in each of the next 5. 2 dc in the final chain.
  3. Mark this side as your right side with a stitch marker. You will need to keep an eye on this stitch marker as some of the stitches used in The Stitch is Right to have characteristics where it matters which side you start the pattern on.
  4. You may need to fasten on a new colour and pay attention to the right side and wrong side.

From this point, the below stitching instruction plus 7 others that are part of The Stitch is Right is ready to be built onto this point.

  1. in row 2 after the first 12 sts, you have “hdc sc in next chain (top of chevron)” I don’t think this is correct. It should be… ‘3 hdc in next st’ … Yes?

  2. Mikey, when making a chevron blanket with hdc, do I still do the chain row in dc as in video… Or would I do chain row in hdc also? If so, please remind me what chain I start in (2nd from hook). Thank you
