About This Chevron Crochet Blanket Pattern
Crocheting a chevron blanket is so much fun. I love how easy it is to create such a stunning look with a crochet chevron pattern. This pattern consists of rows of single crochet stitches along with a row of adding bobbles and rows of alternating triple crochet stitches for a lovely textured blanket.
It makes a wonderful baby blanket pattern but does not need to be made just for a baby. The end result (I think) is so beautiful that it would be a perfect lapghan, throw or any blanket for an adult or for your home decor.

The pattern creates a blanket that is 28″ wide x 30″ high. This size is ideal for a newborn or for a carseat/stroller blanket. As mentioned above, you can make the blanket any size you’d like.
Determining your chevron crochet blanket pattern size
You can easily adjust the size of the blanket by increasing or decreasing the number of starting chains in multiples of 16 + 2. You can also make a gauge swatch to see exactly the size it will be using your specific yarn and hook. Then you can determine how many starting chains you should make to achieve your desired width (the number of rows determines the height).

How do you crochet a chevron blanket?
Before making your first crochet chevron blanket, it can be intimidating when looking at all the ups and downs and you may think that it must be difficult to make. But the truth is, it’s really easy to crochet a chevron blanket! You simply skip stitches to create the “valley” and make multiple stitches in one stitch to create the “peak.”
The pattern will show you step by step how to crochet a chevron blanket and how to make a bobble and triple/treble crochet stitches. There’s also a full video tutorial.

Chevron crochet blanket Pattern Details
The pattern creates a blanket that is approx 28” wide and 30” high (ideal for a newborn or carseat/stroller baby blanket). Instructions for adjusting the size are included in the pattern.
Creating 34 starting chains and following the pattern from the start to Row 11 creates a swatch that is 7“ wide and 3.75” high (height measured from “peak” to “peak”).
Yarn: Approx 1,230 yds / 1,122 m of Size 4 (medium/worsted weight) yarn. You can also use Size 3 (DK/light) yarn (just note that the size of your blanket will be smaller.)
I used Patons Canadiana which is medium (4) and 100% acrylic in the colors: Cherished Green, Pale Teal & Cherished Pink. A skein is 3.5 oz / 100 g and 205 yd / 187 m. I used a total of 6 skeins.
Crochet Hook Size: If using Size 4 yarn, I recommend either a H/8 (5.00 mm) if your yarn is on the lighter side or an I/9 (5.50 mm) hook if your yarn is thicker. If using Size 3 yarn, I recommend a G/6 (4.00 mm) hook. Note that hook size is not important so can choose whatever works best with your yarn. You may want to go up one hook size for the starting chains or to obtain gauge.
Other Materials: scissors, yarn needle, measuring tape (optional)
The pattern is written in English for right-handed crochet using US terminology. If you are more familiar with UK terminology, check out my US to UK Conversion Chart.
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
st = stitch
sts = stitches
sk = skip
YO = yarn over
sc = single crochet
tr = triple (treble) crochet
RS = right side (front of blanket)
WS = wrong side (back of blanket)
How to Adjust the Size
The blanket that I created using size 4 yarn, an H/8 (5.00mm) hook and 146 starting chains is approx 28” wide. You can adjust the width of the blanket by making less or more starting chains in multiples of 16 + 2. For example, if you wanted to make this blanket twice the size (56” wide), you would make 290 (288 + 2) starting chains.
To adjust the height, make fewer or more rows.

The pattern does not include directions for where to change colors because there are so many possibilities. You can make the blanket in one solid color or use any number of colors. I’ve included some ideas of where to change colors but the possibilities are truly endless and I would love to see what you come up with!
Change colors after finishing a row by placing the new color on your hook and pulling the new color through the loop of your current color. Fasten off the old color. With your new color, ch 1 and begin the next row.
Ideas of where to change Colors
1) Change colors after one and a half repeats:
Color A: Start – Row 11. Rows 2 – 6.
Color B: Rows 7 – 11. Rows 2 – 11.
Color C: Rows 2 – 11. Rows 2 – 6.
2) Change colors after every repeat:
Color A: Start – Row 11.
Color B: Rows 2 – 11.
Color C: Rows 2 – 11.
3) Change colors after every section:
Color A: Start to Row 6.
Color B: Rows 7 – 11.
Color C: Rows 2 – 6.
A bobble is a dc5tog into the same stitch.
Here is how to do it: YO, insert your hook into the next stitch, YO and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook). YO, pull yarn through 2 loops on hook (2 loops on hook). YO, insert your hook into the same stitch, YO and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook). YO, pull yarn through 2 loops on hook (3 loops on hook). YO, insert your hook into the same stitch, YO and pull up a loop (5 loops on hook). YO, pull yarn through 2 loops on hook (4 loops on hook). YO, insert your hook into the same stitch, YO and pull up a loop (6 loops on hook). YO, pull yarn through 2 loops on hook (5 loops on hook). YO, insert your hook into the same stitch, YO and pull up a loop (7 loops on hook). YO, pull yarn through 2 loops on hook (6 loops on hook). YO, pull yarn through all 6 loops on hook.
The next stitch after a bobble is always a sc. When making your sc in the next stitch, push the bobble stitch to the front (away from you) and crochet tightly as you make the next sc.
Triple/Treble Crochet Stitch (tr):
YO twice, insert hook into next st. YO and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook). YO, pull yarn through 2 loops on hook (3 loops on hook). YO, pull yarn through 2 loops on hook (2 loops on hook). YO, pull yarn through last 2 loops on hook.
Chevron Blanket Pattern Notes
- The pattern is worked from the bottom up.
- All Rows have 154 sts and 9 “valleys” and 8 “peaks” (not including the two ends).
- Ch 1 never counts as a stitch.
- Ch 1 and turn at the end of each row.
- Always work into the 1st stitch of the row (the stitch attached to the chain).
- When the instructions say something like: “Repeat *sc, tr* across the next 6 sts,” what this means is: sc in the next st. Tr in the next st. Continue repeating sc in the next st, tr in the next st until a total of 6 sts are made (3 sc and 3 tr).
- There is a front (RS) and a back side (WS) of the blanket. The front is where the bobble and triple crochet stitches are shown. The back is just single crochet stitches.
- The bobble and triple crochet stitches are always made when the front of the blanket is facing away from you.
- When working into a bobble or a triple crochet stitch from the previous row, always sc into the top of the bobble or triple crochet stitch.

Crochet Chevron Blanket Instructions
If you crochet tightly, you may want to go up a hook size for the starting chains (only) to ensure you can work more easily into the back ridge loop on Row 1.
Foundation/Chain Row: Chain 146.
For Row 1 (only), work into the back ridge loops.
Row 1 (RS): In the 2nd ch from hook, 2 sc. 1 sc in each of the next 7 chains. Sk next ch (“valley” created). 1 sc in each of the next 7 chains. [3 sc in next ch (“peak” created). 1 sc in each of the next 7 chains. Sk next ch (“valley” created). 1 sc in each of the next 7 chains.] Repeat from [ to ] until there is 1 ch left. In last ch, 2 sc. (Reminders: each row when complete has 154 sts. Ch 1 and turn after each row).
(Work in both loops from now on)
Row 2 (WS): In 1st st, 2 sc. 1 sc in next 7 sts. Sk next 2 sts. 1 sc in next 7 sts. [3 sc in next st. 1 sc in next 7 sts. Sk next 2 sts. 1 sc in next 7 sts.] Repeat from [ to ] until 1 st left. In last st, 2 sc.
Row 3 (RS): Repeat Row 2.
Row 4 (WS): In 1st st, 2 sc. 1 sc in next 3 sts. Bobble. 1 sc in next 3 sts. Sk next 2 sts. 1 sc in next 3 sts. Bobble. 1 sc in next 3 sts. [3 sc in next st. 1 sc in next 3 sts. Bobble. 1 sc in next 3 sts. Sk next 2 sts. 1 sc in next 3 sts. Bobble. 1 sc in next 3 sts.] Repeat from [ to ] until 1 st left. In last st, 2 sc.
Rows 5 – 7: Repeat Row 2.
Row 8 (WS): In 1st st, 2 sc. 1 sc in next st. Repeat *tr, sc* across next 6 sts. Sk next 2 sts. 1 sc in next st. Repeat *tr, sc* across next 6 sts. [In next st, (sc, tr, sc) in the same st. 1 sc in next st. Repeat *tr, sc* across next 6 sts. Sk next 2 sts. 1 sc in next st. Repeat *tr, sc* across next 6 sts.] Repeat from [ to ] until there is 1 st left. In last st, 2 sc.
Row 9 (RS): Repeat Row 2.
Row 10 (WS): Repeat Row 8.
Row 11 (RS): Repeat Row 2.
Repeat Rows 2 – 11 until your desired height (for reference, a blanket that is 30” high repeats Rows 2 – 11 a total of 8 times). You can end after any row. When finished, fasten off and weave in all loose ends.
To help your blanket lie flat and not curve, I recommend blocking your finished blanket.
And that’s it! Now you have a new Textured Chevron Blanket.
