The width of your blanket would depend on the hook of the crochet. The choice of yarn would also be responsible for determining the size of the blanket. The design appears to be very sharp in the Chevron pattern because of the color combination between the two colors that you choose.

2. A Newborn Baby Blanket:

A newborn baby blanket is an ideal gift for someone who just had a baby. Knitters who are beginners could easily stitch this blanket. You can choose the type of stitch you want –  from waffle stitch and bamboo stitch to rice stitch and seed stitch.

You can either continue making the blanket in one stitch or make a mix of various stitches into one blanket.
