Crochet Chevron Blanket Tutorial Free

Is this not a gorgeous blanket? I LOVE crochet and I love how it turns out! It is a wonderful relaxation time for me and always turns out way better than I expect!

I made this for a dear friend who loves to crochet as well, but just didn’t have the time for this baby. I have previously done a zigzag (chevron) blanket  but that was single crochet, I didn’t like how steep the peaks were and I wanted something faster. I searched and searched for patterns I wanted, and I even started a few and couldn’t get the hang of them! So I used what I learned and created my own!

Materials:
(based on the size blanket I made)

~3 skeins of yarn (My favorite baby is Bernat Baby Softee)

note: quantity of yarn will vary based on size of blanket.

crochet hook (I used H – 5 mm)

Pattern:

ch: 138

Starting in 2nd ch from hook – dc2tog. then dc in each of next 8 ch. *3dc in next ch, dc in each of next 10 ch, skip 2 ch, dc in each next 10ch*, 3dc in next ch, dc in each of next 8 ch, dc2tog, ch2 turn.

Repeat whole pattern each row changing colors when desired.

Stitches Reference

ch: Chain

dc2tog: double crochet 2 together – do half of one double crochet and leave 2 loops on hook then start the next double crochet and finish pulling through all loops.

dc: double crochet

Notes:

The dc2tog makes a nice even edge along the sides of the blanket.

This pattern is easily adjustable to make larger or smaller. (also note that using a different size hook will result in a different size blanket)

Decide how many peaks you want in the blanket (the pattern above is for 6 peaks).  Use this formula:

(21 * # of peaks)+ 2*(# of peaks -1) +2.

Here is the math done for you for a few!

6 peaks =  138 ch

8 peaks = 184 ch

10 peaks = 230 ch
