Zig and Zag Sock Yarn pram baby blanket
You could use a more limited palette and switch between fewer colours or knit more pattern rows in the same colour for wider chevrons.

The finished blanket measures 54cm x 66cm but you could make it any size.
You could adapt the needle size depending on how tightly knit you prefer the finished item. I used 4.5mm as I wanted a looser look and I had varying thicknesses of sock yarn, but for a tighter knit, move down a needle size to 3.5mm. The finished blanket will be smaller.
It could be easily adapted to become a scarf.
I used a selection of sock weight yarn including Skein Queen, Posh Yarn, Koigu, Socks That Rock, Hipknits and Sunshine Yarns. You could use any yarns of the same weight. It’s a great pattern for using up odd bits of yarn.
I only used a very small amount of each, enough for four rows, though you will need a larger quantity of the colour which forms the border and is knitted in garter stitch.
Border uses 50m (55 yards) of sock weight yarn.
I need to re-measure the amount of yarn used per stripe.
There are 42 stripes.
The finished blanket weighs 140g.
