The Big Bold Chevron Curtain pattern almost ended up with the name “Emergency Chevrons,” because they were the answer to a little emergency I discovered when we first moved into this house. The window in the master bath faces the neighbor’s house. And while the bottom half of the window came covered in privacy window film, the top half was clear as can be – and Geoff and I are both significantly taller than the previous owners! Yikes! The Big Bold Chevron Curtain was the answer!
A little bit of stash from leftover projects was all I needed to whip up this lacy chevron curtain – add a tension rod and done! It’s nice and open so that the light comes in, but the bold lines obscure the view of any looky-loos.
And I just love the grey and white chevrons! I’m not in love with the green paint color, but we’re still unpacking – painting is a bit down on the moving to do list. But this curtain and color scheme will be sure to work well with any future remodeling!
If you’re looking for a longer curtain, it’s easy to just keep adding rows in the pattern… all the way to the floor if you like! If your window is a lot wider, make 2 and they’ll open like traditional panel curtains. The Big Bold Chevron Curtain is the perfect crochet curtain pattern for the bath, bedroom, kitchen, living room – any room of the house! And I’ve got some coordinating patterns using this stitch coming soon too! So excited!
