Notes:

  1. Afghan is worked in two sections using ripple crochet patterns and different striping sequences. The ripple patterns are similar and easy to do, but it’s important to remember that you may need to work several rows before the ripple pattern becomes clear.
  2. The ripple pattern consists of alternating peaks and valleys. The peaks are made by working 3 sts or (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in the center st or ch-sp of the peaks of the previous row. The valleys are made by skipping sts centered over the valleys of the previous row. Take care to keep the peaks and valleys of each row aligned.
  3. The yarn color is changed to make stripes. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. The old color can be fastened off, leaving a long tail to weave in later, or can be carried carefully up side of piece until next needed. If colors not in use are carried up side of piece, take care to hide the carried strands when working the side borders.
  4. Borders are worked onto completed Afghan.

This Chevron Rainbow Afghan is ideal for those who are looking for a colorful but laid back look of an afghan. The colors used are not the bright hues yet retains its appeal. I like the way size of the chevron changes halfway down to the bottom of the afghan. This project will make for a beautiful gift to a special lady in your life or for personal use at home especially this fall season. Thanks for this well-written free pattern complete with a diagram and which is available anytime on this site

This would make an excellent gift!
