I love the unique look of this blanket!

This 8-color Rainbow Chevron Crochet Pattern is so beautiful. I gave a five star rating for the not-very-common combination of colors and for the assymetrical chevron pattern. Thanks for the free pattern. I became inspired to make this project when I saw the pattern on this same page complete with diagrams and clear instructions.
