I love chevrons. There's something about them that seems nautical and summery. Stripes of any nature make my hands get grabby, so (naturally) I've been queuing the hell out of anything that even closely resembles them.
Have you ever noticed that someone will come out with a technique or motif, and suddenly, you're awash in buckets of patterns utilizing that same concept? The Kate Davie's Owls Sweater is a great example...
Luckily, someone decided it was time to create colorblocked chevrons using increase and decrease techniques instead of the standard staggering colorwork. I'm queuing them about as quickly as they're coming out.

I love how chic this is-- it reminds me a bit of Charlie Brown's famous tee shirt, and the colors could be swapped out to match a nursery. What a trendy little baby gift that definitely transcends any "home made" judgement.
Oh chevrons... Marry me. You are sassy and geometric and just the right amount of plain for bright colors.
Okay, people, show me MORE! in the comments.
