When I spotted this ball of Bernat Blanket Stripes in color Meadowbrook, I knew I had to make a chevron blanket! This one is small (car seat blanket size) but you can make your chevron blanket as big as you’d like just by adding in multiples of 12. So this blanket has 6 V shapes (12 x 6) + 2 which is a starting chain of 74. If you wanted 10 V shapes you would make (12 x 10) +2 which is a starting chain of 122.
I’m kinda obsessed with Bernat Blanket Yarn right now 🙂 If you haven’t noticed yet, all my projects this month use this yarn! Check out THIS Cluster Stitch Blanket and THIS Giant Crochet Jellyfish for other ideas of how to use this super soft and squishy yarn.
– Bernat Blanket Stripes in any color of your choice! Shop HERE at Yarnspirations.com. I used 1.5 balls.
– Size I (5.5mm) Crochet Hook
– Large Tapestry Needle
Finished Size: 25 inches tall x 23 inches wide
Chevron Blanket Pattern:
Chain 74, 2 SC in second chain from hook (this counts as your first 3 SC), SC in next 4, now you are going to make a 3 SC Decrease (SC three stitches together), *SC in next 4, 3 SC in next, SC in next 4, 3 SC Decrease, repeat from * until the end of the chain making 3 SC in the last stitch, chain 1, turn.
Row 2: 2 SC in second stitch, SC in next 4, 3 SC Decrease, SC in next 4, 3 SC in next, repeat until end, make 3 SC in last stitch, chain 1, turn
Repeat row 2 for as long as you’d like! I made 44 rows. Let the colors in the self-striping yarn do their thing! Fasten off and weave in ends.
Add pom-poms or tassels to the ends of the chevron “v” for an extra touch!

I was wondering, how do you make sure that every stripe has a different colour? I love the colours in this one!!

Hi Sarah. I can see why you love the yarn. Thanks for sharing your lovely Chevron blanket pattern. Our readers will love it! I’ve included your pattern in our latest craft inspiration collection. https://craftylikegranny.com/craft-ideas-mulitply/ Cheers Jodie 🙂
What a great blanket! I personally don’t care for this particular yarn, but I love this pattern. Thank you for sharing!
In row 2, where does the repeat start? There is no * so do I start with 2 sc?
Gabrielle Striker says
Yeah this pattern is actually written terribly for anyone who doesn’t already have familiarity with chevron or zig zag. You can get through the chain and first row just fine, but upon starting the 2nd and subsequent rows, you’re left in the dark. On 2nd and later rows, I have no idea what to do once I get to the peaks and valleys, the peaks especially because you actually end up with MORE stitch spaces! I got through the first row and just turned and now I feel really frustrated because I don’t know what to do.
Gabrielle Striker says
Ok I reread the pattern and it does include R2 but I feel super confused about it… Maybe it’s just me but I feel like I have too many stitch spaces to work into when I get to peaks. No idea what I’m doing or seeing wrong!
Gabrielle Striker says
Alright – so I tried just working it up, and *I* messed up my initial chain count. This pattern wasn’t meant to be a beginner’s tutorial – it’s just a written pattern and my frustration came from my OWN mistakes. I feel just awful about how rude I was in my initial comment, and embarrassed about how wrong I was, too!
Jodie or moderator – if you can delete all of my comments, please do. If you cannot or prefer not to, then to any future readers: If you feel that you cannot understand this pattern as written, go back and VERY carefully count your stitches and search for mistakes in your work. The problem almost certainly lies there, and not in the pattern.
I sincerely apologize!!!
I also get lost with row 2. On one side of the peak it says sc then sc in next 4. The other side only says sc in next 4. That would make one side with 5 the other side with 4. When i skipped the single sc and then only work the sc in next 4, row 2 doesn’t work. The 3 sc in 1 space is never in the center of the 3 sc of the previous row. I have been crocheting for more than 50 years and this isn’t working. What am i missing.

5.5 hook makes for some incredibly tight stitches. Going to restart with a much bigger hook.
