Inspired by Colorado skies and a love for knit chevrons, My Blue Heaven is a rectangle shawl knit lengthwise to produce a blanket of comfort. The use of strategically placed garter stitch produces a simple texture to deliver both an interesting fabric as well as an interesting knit.
I don’t know what it is about knit chevrons but I love them. Maybe it’s the simplicity of the shape or watching the knit fabric bend to my will. Whatever it is, it brings me great joy. I designed this pattern to satisfy my own desire to knit chevrons and share that joy with knitters everywhere.
What’s with the name? I know I pin-holed myself a bit by having a color in the pattern name but I couldn’t help it. When the design was unfolding in my brain, I just knew it had to incorporate chevrons and I kept getting “my blue chevron” stuck on my head to the tune of “My Blue Heaven.” What was a girl to do. The design essentially named itself.
I am very pleased with this pattern and really enjoyed knitting it up. I hope you will too.
