I have a slight obsession with the chevron pattern at the moment for the past year or so.
Both in knitting and crochet patterns. I can even pinpoint the start .......
in memory of the crochet afghan my sweet Grandma made for me when I was 16. My Retro Blanket is only 26 rows away from being complete. Why not finish it???? Its been put aside because its just too heavy and warm to work on...... I will finish it up as soon as we get some freezing temps.....not rushing that one.
Since the Retro Blanket, other designs have surfaced and are completed, on the needles and in swatches.
Promanade Lace Wrap/Scarf. In mohair.
Recently finished colorwork scarf (more later on this one)
That's alot of up and down patterns.
I don't want to believe its because of a childhood thing....
of course not....... now that would be ridiculous. I was always a Snoopy fan. Unless its just the many fond memories of my Grandma crocheting beautiful afghans for everyone she knew.
Perhaps there is no explanation.
But I love the chevron, zigzag, ripple, herringbone, flamestitch and rick-rack patterns regardless.
Happy Knitting and Crocheting!
