Chevron Baby Hat and some others

Chevron is all the rage right now and I was very surprised that I could not find any chevron knitting patterns.  I searched the internet a bit so there could be ones out there but I couldn't find a single image or website with chevron.  So I decided to make my own.

For a first attempt I am pretty pleased with it.  Not going to lie, the scrap yarn I used is a little bright and depending on your screen and settings and how large you view the pictures it can get pretty psychedelic.  You know when you look directly into the sun and it hurts and then everything you look at afterwards is on fire?  Yea, that's how these photos can look.  It's actually quite awful so hopefully you are viewing nice, clear, crisp photos right now.
(If not, my apologies.  Please don't judge the Chevron pattern until you've seen the nice subdued ones 
I am working on now.  K, thanks.)

For the first time ever I actually wrote down the pattern.  When I knit I usually just wing it and make it up as I go.  This time I actually used grid paper to draw it out and then I wrote it out.  The grid paper made it way easier to write out.  I'm knitting up a few more chevron hats in different colors and styles and even some different variations so when I have a nice collection started I will share the pattern here. Just wait a little longer.

I've been knitting a lot lately and here are some of my latest projects.

I love the colors of the chevron hat!
It would be easy to find in a park or somewhere outside.
Those baby booties and matching hat are just precious!
