Chevron Ombre Crocheted Blanket

Here is my second attempt at a crocheted blanket.  I'll have to get pictures up of my first one. I love the process of crocheting because I can do it anytime and virtually anywhere.  So a row here and a row there eventually come together to create something.  It does take awhile, so patience is a must! 

I followed this blog's tutorial.  However, I made the following revisions: I did not work the back loop of the single crochet but instead worked both loops (a basic single crochet, I guess?)  I also did not do stripes; I chose to do an ombre blanket, so I used the whole skein (about 35 rows) and then moved onto the next color.

I used 1 skein each of Caron's Simply Soft yarn (6 oz.) in Country Blue, Soft Blue and White.  I loved how it turned out- really quite soft.

I hope you start making these to sell...

They take so much time that I'm not sure it would be worth it money-wise! Quilts are so much quicker (believe it or not). But then again, it's not like my kids need more than one blanket!
