Easy Chevron Baby Blanket
I chose to carry up the yarn when changing colors instead of breaking the yarn and weaving in all those ends. Do whatever works best for you.
Final Measurements: 34" x 41"
Gauge: Gauge isn't super important with this blanket, but each chevron peak = 5 inches across and 3 inches from top of peak to base line (if a straight line had been drawn from tip to tip).
-Yarn: I used 1 skein of Caron One Pound in Forest Green (Color B), 1/2 skein of Caron One Pound in each of Pale Green (Color A) and Soft Sage (Color C).

Starting With Color A, Ch 178.
Row 1: Skip 2 ch, work 2 dc in next ch, *1 dc in next 7 ch, dc3tog x 2, 1 dc in next 7 ch, 3 dc in next ch x 2. Repeat from * 6 more times. 1 dc in next 7 ch, dc3tog x 2, 1 dc in next 7 ch, 3 dc in next ch, ch 2, turn.
Row 2: 2 dc in 1st st, *1 dc in next 7 sts, dc3tog x 2, 1 dc in next 7 sts, 3 dc in next st x 2. Repeat from * 6 more times. 1 dc in next 7 sts, dc3tog x 2, 1 dc in next 7 sts, 3 dc in top of turning chain, ch 2, turn.
Attach Color B
Repeat Row 2 until blanket is desired length alternating colors every 2 rows. If you are using 3 colors like I did, after the 6th Color B stripe, attach Color C and continue alternating every 2 rows.
Bind off and weave in ends. If you are doing the border, you don't have to break the Color B yarn if you are okay with starting where it's located.
Sc around entire blanket (using Color B). In the peaks and valleys, do the increases (3sc) and decreases (sc2tog). In the corners, do 2 sc sts. Join to 1st sc with a sl st, bind off and weave in end.
