Hey darlings it’s me and today is Tuesday and I’ve been working extensively on figuring out—well actually more getting my viewer responses of different kind of crochet done. I get a lot of people asking me to do certain patterns and do certain techniques and you know what it’s quite overwhelming so I receive a compassionate email maybe about a month ago and it was from, I believe a young girl that was attempting to do what she was calling a zigzag.
So I’ve done three examples of zigzag here for you and in other people called this chevron. So we’re going to do three tutorials on the three types of chevrons that I’ve done. Okay, so the first one I like the most and first the thing I’m going to show you the most and this is a ridge chevron and you can see here that it has reaches in the actual chevron itself and I really think that look smart and that is by using the back loops and we can show how to do that. It also is a nice weave to it and you know what this look really sharp if you we’re to do multi colors like this one.
So this is the raised ridge chevron or zigzag pattern that I’m going to show you there. The other one I’m going to show you in this one is just a regular chevron zigzag and what’s we have here, we just have a nice lazy weave to it and it looks kind of funky but you know once you get a few more this thing will straighten out and it will balanced it, so you don’t have to worry about it. Make it as long as you need to. I will tell you in each one there's a set number that you need to do in order to make a successful weave and I’ll tell you how to do that. So this is just the regular—I’m going to call this, I’m making it myself the lazy weave chevron zigzag and I called that supposedly I remember that.
This one here is a more rigid kind of chevron. You can see that it’s more of angles that are not wavy. It’s more—and this one look really sharp as well in multi color and this one—and all of these are very easy to do. So I’m going to call this—what I’m going to call this one? I’m just going to call this the rigid chevron zigzag. I’m going to call that the rigid.
So we’re going to show all three examples and the thing about the chevrons that you should keep in mind is that it is much easier to finish your chevron the same way. So see how we get a W, so no matter where you do your chevron try to make sure like the end of your blanket that if this is going upon the side that your end of your blanket on the other side is also going up, it will just make it easier on starting and finishing the line because you don’t have to think about it because it will be the same no matter where you turn.
I guess that is it. So those are the three examples of hopefully I remember the names to them. And we’re going to reviewing the chevron series as resulted, that email— that is coming in. So there we go and I’m use different color and all of that child. So Eric my tooth ready, so I’m get going and we’ll to you in a little bit doing the demonstrations.
