Chevron Crochet Blanket Pattern

I am so excited about this Chevron Crochet Blanket pattern. My mom tried to teach me to crochet when I was younger, I remember her trying to be proud of me, but all I could do one a single chain – still I’d make that single chain as long as I could – if you wrap it around yourself enough times, it becomes a scarf. Maybe I could have started a trend.
Later my former husband’s mawmaw tried to teach me to crochet – I learned how to make a pot holder. I actually learned how to make a lot of pot holders, but I wasn’t much of a cook so that didn’t get me very far. I wanted to make them both proud – but a 90 foot long scarf and a handful of potholders was all I had to offer.

During most patterns, I lose count, and if you get much fancier than a single crochet I have to flip back and forth between tutorials to figure out what I’m doing. I get pretty overwhelmed and toss the work aside.

Not the case with the chevron crochet blanket pattern – no boredom – as each row grew I became more and more excited.
No losing count – if you can count to 14, you can do this one.
No fancy stitches – it’s just single crocheting!


And to top it off, it’s pretty fast to add a row.

It took me one week to finish this pattern, crocheting only about an hour to an hour and a half every day.

Typically I store my work away and only pull it out when I have time to work on it, but for this blanket, it matched my den so well that I left it laying on the couch, making it easy to just pick up anytime I sat down or had a spare 8 minutes to add a row to it.

My daughter came home to visit from college and fell in love with the half-done piece asking if she could call dibs on it – so now I have an excellent idea for her for Christmas, if she can wait that long.


Simple Chevron Crochet Blanket Pattern

You can find this pattern in so many places online. It’s not my original pattern and Lord only knows where it originated. In most of the online patterns, the creators tell you how many rows of each color they did – not the case with me. I didn’t want it to feel like a “to-do” item, a task of some sort – I wanted to have fun with this, make it random, and ensure that there would never be an exact duplicate of the crochet blanket.

So I committed to a minimum of three rows of each stripe and a maximum of 10 rows and when I got tired of one, I switched to the next.

I bought the yarn on sale at Michael’s when it was only $2/skein, so this blanket only cost $12 to make – if you recognize the cost and quantity of yard most patterns take, you realize this was a very cheap blanket to make.

Chevron Crochet Blanket Pattern

Materials: Several colors of medium weight yarn Chevron Crochet Blanket Pattern
I used 4.5oz skeins:

  • (1.5) skeins of Impeccable brand in Teal
  • (1.5) skeins of Impeccable brand in Aqua
  • (1) skeins of Impeccable brand in Navy
  • (2) skeins of Impeccable brand in Aran (off white)

Size K /5.5mm hook


Chain 183 (this makes the blanked about 42″ wide, chain loosely)

Row 1:  SC in 2nd  ST from hook,  *SC in each of next 14 STS, 3 SC in next ST, SC in next 14 ST, SK 1 ST*, repeat from * across, ending with the SK 1 CH, SC in last CH, CH 1, turn.

Row 2-??: Working in back LP of STS for the remainder of the pattern, SC in first SC, SK 1 SC, * SC in each of next 14 STS, 3 SC in next ST, SC in each of next 14 STS, SK 2 STS, repeat from * across, end each row with SK 1 ST, SC in last ST, CH 1, turn.

Change colors depending on your preference

You can choose to do equal thickness stripes or opt for a more random pattern such as the one shown.

Work as many rows as you’d like for length – I made my blanket 42″ wide and 56″ long – just big enough to snuggle under all by yourself 🙂

Lovely blanket. I did one at Christmas but I called it a ripple blanket … Love your colours

Jennifer March 1, 2016 - 7:46 am

What a beautiful blanket, I can’t believe that you made it so quickly! I only managed to learn crochet a few months ago after several failed attempts, now I can’t believe how difficult I found it, it’s so much easier than knitting! I love how you used a random pattern for the stripes. Thanks for sharing!

I love this blanket, I really want to learn to crochet & your enthusiasm for this chevron pattern has spurred me on even more! I have seen so many beautiful crochet projects recently, especially on Instagram. It looks like a very addictive craft, I think if I can master it, I’d probably never stop. Thanks for linking up with #craftingismytherapy this month.

Hi! Thanks for the pattern! I’m making a similar pattern for my sister. I want to do a ‘random’ one like you, but I’m not very good at being random. I love the way yours looks, and I’d like to do one just like it. Could you perhaps send me the amount of rows you have for each color?

Mary September 7, 2016 - 10:42 pm

Hi, Brandy! Love your beautiful blanket and how you actually made chevrons instead of just a ripple. I’ve been looking for a pattern for a blanket for a Christmas present, and this is perfect!

One question: how many peaks, ie top chevron points, are there across? I’d like to make the blanket a little wider and was wondering about this so I can tweak the math.

brandyburke September 12, 2016 - 12:21 pm

Hi Mary, there are 6 peaks in this blanket – it’s big enough to cover up and watch television under but I do wish I’d made it about 2 peaks wider so that everything was covered when you move around 🙂

Sandra January 30, 2017 - 2:23 am

So doing row one at the end. I ended up ending with like doing the 3dc in one st. Then only being able to sc in the next ten then sk1 an Sc in last. Is that right ? Or am I supposed to end at sc 14 then sk1 an sc in last? I’m confused how I lasted there?

goodstuffmama January 31, 2017 - 2:32 pm

HI Sandra – you end at 14 SC then you skip a stitch and single crochet in the last stitch.

Keri May 1, 2019 - 2:20 am

I’d like to make this pattern in a wider version as well! Is there any way you could tell me how many stitches you chain to achieve a wider blanket in this pattern? Thanks in advance!

Katrina March 11, 2017 - 7:41 pm

When you end row 2,to continue the pattern do you repeat row 1,then row 2 again,or do you just repeat row 2 for the remainder of the pattern?

goodstuffmama March 15, 2017 - 11:59 am

Hi Katrina,

You just continue on with Row 2 until the blanket is as long as you wish.

Can this pattern be done with double crochet not fond of single

Brandy Burke July 12, 2018 - 11:37 am

Hi June. I’ve never tried it as a double crochet. I’d think it would work out just fine. let me know how it goes!

June July 12, 2018 - 6:07 pm

Thank you I’ll try and see how it works

Delainelong September 20, 2018 - 12:03 am

I’m working on a chevron blanket from a previous person was not finished her pattern start off with 22sc to the peak and then 11 sc valley, then back up to 11 sc for the peak, then she goes to 8 sc for the valley and 8sc for the peak, then moves to 6sc valley and 6sc for the peak and then repeat have you ever heard of this.
