This simple stitch pattern creates a delightful chevron without complicated decreases. Carry the unworked yarn up the side and then cover with a border to minimize the number of yarn tails you need to weave in. This beautiful unisex blanket makes a perfect gift for a baby shower or as a donation to your favorite children’s charity.

This pattern is part of my monthly charity spotlight series, where I highlight a charity that accepts crochet and other handmade donations and share a crochet pattern designed with that charity in mind. This month’s featured charities are the organizations spotlighted through the Friends of Pine Ridge Reservation. I’ve also included a complete video tutorial to walk you through the pattern, step-by-step.
