Is the entire afghan worked in the back loop only (BLO)? That would be something different that I haven't seen in a chevron stitch blanket. The random widths of the stripes give it great interest versus the even rows of color that we normally see worked. I'd love to use the Loops Threads Impeccable yarn for this. The color choices are for me!

Love the colors of this Rainbow Sherbet afghan. Dark pink and aqua blue in chevron design. The pattern found in front of the page is appreciated for easy access to crocheters.

I found that the best method is to count your chains as you make them. Just insure that you have 6 chains between points. However, I am ending up with going 'up' at the end of the row, instead of down as the pattern seems to call for. (I hope that makes sense.)

I also am having problems with pattern. I can't get it to come out right. Iv'e checked for corrections but there aren't any. I love the colors and the pattern looks beautiful. Any help out there.

I have been trying to start this afghan and for some reason I cannot get it to work to the end I always am short stiches to complete the end and I do not have enough chevron points. Has anyone else had this problem or is it only me? Is 225 ch correct? I love it bought the yarn but can't get it to work.
