Working with the Chevron Pattern
While working on this pattern I kept making mistakes until I took the time to really “see” the pattern. Rather than looking at the whole zig-zag pattern, you need to look at it as a series of stacked triangles. The light color builds triangles that stack up from the base. Then when you repeat the pattern you are building a set of dark colored triangles that are stacked directly on top of the light colored ones. Nothing is actually off-set. Hopefully my notes here will help save others some time. 🙂

Learn to Knit Afghan Project
This series covers several different knitting stitches using the Learn-to-Knit Afghan book by Barbara Walker. Whether you are a true beginner or an intermediate knitter, you can take your knitting to the next level working through the blocks in this book. About once a week I will be adding one new block to the blog with some of my notes. If you would like to knit along with us please feel free to leave your comments, questions, suggestions, and links to photos in the COMMENT section. You can also add a photo to our Flickr group or tag a Tweet with #WFAlearn2knit. If you are just joining us you might want to start with the introductory post.

If you are completely new to knitting you can learn the basics of getting starting with our Newbie Knitting series. Once you have tackled the first few lessons there, you will be ready to begin your afghan.
