I’m not quite finished with this Chevron Blanket but I wanted to go ahead and put a quick tutorial on how to crochet in a chevron pattern! It’s actually much easier than you think. Let me show you a simple technique that will have you crocheting chevrons all year round! So many color combination possibilities and you can coordinate the design with so many holidays and seasons.
For this blanket I am using beautiful shades of Bernat Super Value in Royal Blue, Peacock Blue, Cool Blue, and White to create a look of waves. I will be adding my OCEAN FRIEND APPLIQUES to the blanket when it is finished.
As you can see, the chevron works like a zig-zag line that is made up of peaks (points) and valleys (dips). I am using 3 DC for the increase (peaks) and a SC Decrease over 3 stitches for the valleys (the dips). Then all you need to do is make a SC in the 4 stitches between each peak and valley. You will get the hang of it by the second row!
Feel free to make the blanket as small or large as you’d like!
You will work is multiples of 12 +2
The blanket I am working on has a starting chain of 110 (12 x9 = 108 +2 = 110) and is about 24 inches wide. This is a small blanket so feel free to go larger! Use a starting chain fo 122, 134, 158, 170, 182, 194, 206, etc.
– Bernat Super Value Yarn (1-2 skeins of each depending on how big your blanket is – I’m using one skien of each)
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
Crochet Chevron Pattern:
Chain 110 (or use your multiple of 12 + 2 for a longer chain)
2 SC in second chain from hook, 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 am make six rows of each color as I go. You can switch color anytime or do as I’m doing!
My plan is to add tassels to the ends of the chevron “v” for an extra touch!
Here is a video on how to crochet a Chevron Blanket! Let me help you work through the first few rows!
Stay tuned for the reveal of the finished blanket!
