Chevron Crochet Blanket Pattern
Skill Level: Intermediate
To make the lap size version you will need.
- Five skeins of Lion Brand Yarn, Vanna’s Choice Yarn.
- I used (2) dark grey heather, (1) oatmeal, (1) grey marble, and (1) barley.
- Size J crochet hook or 6 MM
- Yarn needle
- 38” x 24” as written
- Gauge is 16 st’s for every 4″
- If you would like to make a sample to practice on ch 17 + 16 st and
follow along with the pattern
- Your sc 3 in one st will always be in the 2nd sc of the sc3 from the
previous row (this will make your hump)
- If you would like to make this blanket smaller or larger start with a beginning chain that is a multiple of 17. For example: 17, 34, 51, 68, 85, 102, 119, 136, 153, 170, 187, 204, 221, 238, 255, 272, 289, 306, 323, and 340 and then add on an additional 16 chains to whichever length you have chosen.
- Written in standard US terms.
- ch= chain
- sc= single crochet
- st= stitch
- sc2tog = single crochet two stitches together
FOUNDATION ROW: with the first color of your choice ch 101 or whatever length you have chosen. I started with dark grey heather.
ROW 1: starting in the second chain from hook sc2tog, 1 sc in each of next 5 ch’s, sc 3 times in next ch, *1 sc in the next 7 ch’s, skip next 2 ch, 1 sc in next 7 ch’s, sc 3 times in next ch. Repeat from * across until you are left with 7 chains, single crochet into the next five and then sc2tog. (100)
ROW 2: ch 1, starting in the 1st st sc2tog, make 1 sc in each of next 5 st, sc 3 times in next st, *1 sc in the next 7 st, skip next 2 st, 1 sc in next 7 st, sc 3 times in next st. Repeat from * across until you are left with 7 st then sc once into the next five and finally sc2tog. (100)
ROW 3 – 19: repeat row 2.
ROW 20: change colors (I used oatmeal), repeat row 2
ROW 21- 39: repeat row 2
ROW 40: change colors (I used barley), repeat row 2
ROW 41-59: repeat row 2.
ROW 60: change colors (I used grey marble), repeat row 2.
ROW 61-79: repeat row 2.
ROW 80: change colors (I used dark grey heather), repeat row 2.
ROW 81-99: repeat Row 2 for the rest of the blanket.
FINISHING: Fasten off yarn and weave in loose ends throughout the blanket with a yarn needle.
Blocking Your New Blanket
You may need to block your blanket to get it to lay flat. I suggest wet blocking with this yarn because it is acrylic.
Wet Blocking: Wash or submerge your item entirely in water. Roll out and towel dry. Pin down to a blocking board or lay flat on a towel. Let the item air dry.
Steam Blocking: Lay the item down on a flat surface. Cover your item with a wet towel. Using an iron or steamer slowly press against the wet washcloth to create steam. Shape your item as you go. Let dry. This method is recommended for natural yarn products versus acrylic yarn.
Spray Blocking: Lay item flat on a towel or blocking board. Spray with a water bottle while shaping as you go. You may pin to a blocking board if you’d like. Let dry.
That’s it! The Chevron Crochet Blanket is now complete! If you liked this pattern follow along with me on Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest (where I pin daily!).

OMG I love your pattern. This is like the fourth pattern above tried to do the Chevron pattern but was unable to I only got flat lines! But I hung on and tried your pattern, so glad I did the first row came out! I was so happy after so many attempts, I wasn’t wanting to try again BUT yours said easy. I’m only doing a swatch just for practice until my yarn arrives but it’s so rewarding to get the pattern to work out. Thank you for posting your easy pattern.
I am so glad it worked out! Thank you for taking the time to let me know! It means a lot. If you’d like to share when you are done please feel free to join the Easy Crochet Community on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/groups/easycrochet/
I see you mention that this afghan may need to be blocked. I have not tried the blocking technique but am questioning if blocking is a one-time thing or if the afghan would need to be blocked each time after it is washed otherwise it curls? Just wondering.
I have washed mine quite a bit and it still lays flat. 🙂
Hi Krista I love how neat your chevron patterns are and I am going to try one for my little grandson for when he goes into his big cot/ bed. Would the pattern work if I did multiples of say 25 plus an additional 15 I an trying to achieve bigger chevrons.
Have finally finished my blanket. Yay. Calculated at the size I made it I’d crocheted approximately 50,000 single crochets. It’s a gift for my eldest daughter, now my younger daughter wants one. May need a break for awhile. Would love to send you a pic. Thank you for the pattern and answering my questions along the way. Best wishes Pam
That is awesome Pam! 50,000 stitches! You can share to our FB group if you’d like! https://www.facebook.com/groups/RescuedPawDesigns/
How do I keep my edges straight in the chevron blanket?
I ABSOLUTELY love this blanket pattern – love the color combo! I’m actually going to make this for myself! Can’t wait to get started! Thanks sooooo much for sharing this pattern.
I am so glad you love it! It is one of my favorites too! If you do make it please share it over in the RPD facebook group! https://www.facebook.com/groups/RescuedPawDesigns We are nice! Promise. 🙂
Did you use 2 skeins of each color or 2 skeins of the dark grey heather and one skein of each of the other 3 colors? Do, was the total number of skeins 5 or 8?
Just two skeins of the dark Grey Heather. 🙂 5 total skeins for this size throw.
I would like to make this blanket for a man who is quite tall. But how to I figure out how much yarn I need to buy if I make it 40×50 let’s say? Or a little larger to lay on a twin bed?
I would appreciate your help! This blanket looks amazing!
I think maybe this bit of instruction is missing a comma or word indicating that you should sc2tog in the first two stitches, and then SC in the next 5 stitches: “ROW 2: ch 1, starting in the 1 st sc2tog, do 1 sc in each of next 5 st,…”. I’m not a beginner crocheter but even I was thrown off for a bit until I read it again! The way it reads is almost that you should start the 5 Sc in the 1st stitch. Lovely pattern!
Hi, I’m trying to make a baby blanket. I’m very new to this. I love this pattern it’s easy to read for me being a beginner. I was wonder about how long and wide I should make it?
The size as written should work great! 🙂 Happy Crocheting!
I’m about 1/4 way through a large blanket. I’m counting right but every now and again it doesn’t seem to add up properly. As in, the point I get to when I should do 3 in 1 stitch is too far past the peak, and the bit where I need to skip 2 is a little too late also. Is there any way I can correct this and keep the shape for future rows?
This is probably because of a skipped stitch somewhere since it is so easy to do with projects like these. Is this just in the row you are currently working on? If so I would pull out the row that is wrong and recount the row before to see if a stitch was missed or added. I would also suggest using stitch markers to keep track of stitches by placing them every 10-20 stitches just so it is easy to go back and count stitches if needed.
I’m sorry but I don’t understand how if you have 7 stitches at the end of a row and sc 2 together you are left with 5 stitches. How then when you reach that same end again do you have 7 stitches again?? I have watched the YouTube but see you too have only 5 stitches? Could you please help me to understand this. Thank you so much. Pam
Hi Pam, I do not have a YouTube tutorial on this chevron pattern. I think you may be referring to the Wonders Chevron Blanket that is worked up a little differently. https://easycrochet.com/2015/02/19/the-wonders-chevron-crochet-blanket-pattern/
Question: I am doing this pattern in Dbl crochet stitch instead of single. How many rows should I crochet before changing colors? Should I do 19? Or half it to 8?
Also, I have a large space were the points are- any suggestions on how to fill or pull that together?
I would probably half it if you wanted to stick with about the same width of color blocks. This pattern leaves those holes unfortunately.
You say you chained 101 stitches for your throw size but to enlarge, do it in multiples of 17 stitches. In your end of pattern NOTES you give instructions for smaller or larger and say to start with a beginning chain that is a multiple of 17 – For example…..68,85,102, 119…..what happened to the 101 chains? I was going to enlarge from 101 adding multiples of 17. Should I start with 101 or 102? Thanks for your help!
You also have to add an additional 16 chains to whatever multiple of 17 you have chosen. 🙂 So you would start with 101. Happy Crocheting!
A video on YouTube states on the 2nd row to crochet in the back loop but the instructions from the Pinterest post does not say that. Which did you do from the blanket post
Ed in pinterest.
The video on YouTube is for the Wonders Blanket which can be found here —> https://easycrochet.com/2015/02/19/the-wonders-chevron-crochet-blanket-pattern/
Happy Crocheting. 🙂
Hi there! So my afghan is not looking right… any idea what I’ve done wrong? Where can i post a pic for you?
Hi! You can email me at [email@example.com] with any questions! 🙂
do I put the crochet needle in the top of each stitch picking up the 2 loops or do I just put needle in the front stitch?
You work into both loops. 🙂
This is lovely! In the picture, the blanket looks like it is dimensional, if that makes sense. Is that the case with this pattern? Thank you!
No it’s not dimensional but it does look like it a bit.
Hi Krista- I know you mention a video was taken down because of a mistake, but it has been awhile and no new video. Can you put the old video back up with the mistake so there is something visual? Are their pictures of the steps somewhere? The link to the PDF says the item does not exist on Etsy. Am I missing something?
I haven’t gotten a chance to make a new video yet, but It is on my to do list. 🙂 I am in the process of switching to my own eCommerce website in lieu of Etsy and I haven’t uploaded all the PDF patterns yet but they are coming! 🙂 You can check it out at shop.easycrochet.com and it should be up there soon. 🙂
When I work row 2 as written, my sc 3 in 1 does not line up on the middle of 3sc from the previous row which then throws off the whole row. I have frogged and re-worked 3 times. I am very sure that I am counting correctly. In order for it to line up, you must sc in the first 7, 3sc in 1, sc in the next 7, skip 2, and so on and so forth ending with sc5 and then sc2tog.
To start the second row, you will need to sc the first two stitches together (sc2tog) then work 1 sc in the next 5 st’s, then your 3 sc’s in one stitch (for the hump).
Hope this works for you! 🙂
I am trying to do the Single crochet chevron blanket I printed off you site. Now on my pattern you state to do in multiples of 17 to start then chain an additional 15 to whatever starting chain you picked to start your blanket . Is this correct? I found a site on the internet showing how to figure the multiples. With following their instructions I crocheted 17 chains and measured them and they measured 4 inches.. I want my afghan to be 64 inches wide . I divided 64 divided by 4 which equaled 16 then I multiplied 16×17 which gave me 272 stitches then I added the additional 15 to the 272 and got 287 stitches is this the correct way to do the multiples? I have been working on it and only get two rows done as when I get to the end of the second row the end does not come out like it said in the direction it said to repeat the pattern across until you read the last 7 stitches then it is 2sc in the next 5 stitches. sc2tog in the last 2 stitches. I have done everything over several times. When I do my chain I do 10 chains and then I stop and write down the number each time I do the 10 chains so I will know for sure I have the 287 chains. I am doing the pattern you have doing the crocheting in the back loop which I really like. I want to do 3 different colors I don’t know how many skeins per each color I will need for sure. Thank you I hope you will be able to help me if at all possible. I hope to hear back from you. Thanks again.
It is a multiple of 17 but an additional 16 stitches (not 15)so 288 total. I think that may be it. Let me know if this helps. 🙂
I love this pattern but I too am having problems lining the 3sc properly. On Row 2, after chaining one (making the turning chain) do I still skip one stitch before sc2tog?
Thanks for sharing your pattern!
I think I found the problem. I was referring to the stitches as chains for the second row. I corrected the pattern so it should work up correctly now! 🙂
Hi, I love this pattern. Have been crocheting and knitting just about all my life. I love this blanket. Am attempting to make one for a queen bed. Was wondering if I could use double crochet rather than single. It will be sooo much faster. I am beginning it at this moment. Have already made the chain. Hope you can get back with a response soon. Thanks again. This is beautiful. I am using about 346 chains.
You can! I agree it would work up so much faster! Can’t wait to see it when you are done! 🙂
This is how I’m interpreting the pattern: for each straight of a diagonal (up or down), it should be made of 7 sc and then on both ends of the row it should be 5 sc + sc2tog, right? So basically 7 sc is the same length as 5 sc + sc2tog. Am I correct in this? I’m wondering if I’m missing stiches because I’m not ending up with the same number of stitches in each row and not lining up where it should be. Thanks!
You are correct!
Hi Krista, im about to begin this project and i read all the messages you have been getting, in one of them Derrick tells you about a video, but i cant find it anywhere, i know how to read and work with patterns but i also love to make sure im doing right with visual help. Is there any chance you are uploading the video back soon? greetings!
Hi! I did have a video, but I had to take it down because I found an error in it. I plan on doing another one soon though! 🙂
The beginning chain should have 103 chains, not 101. I’ve done the foundation chain and row 1 a few times and it does not turn out until I add those two extra chains. When I start out with 101 I do not have two remaining, instead it ends with 7 exactly.
Hi. 101 is the correct starting chain length. It should end with 7 stitches. In those last 7 stiches you single crochet in 5 of them and then sc the last 2 together.
Hope this helps!
I made this for my daughter in law and I washed it and stretched it out and let it dry but it still keeps rolling up I
I would suggest steam blocking 🙂 Here is a great tutorial.
Are you supposed to do a sc2tog at the end of every row. I feel like if I do I’m losing a stich every time. Please help!
You do sc2tog at the beginning and end of each row. But, you are also adding stitches in each bump of the chevron so it makes up for it 🙂
Are you supposed to do a sc2tog at the end of each row you do. I feel like I’m losing a stich for every row then. Not sure what I’m doing wrong, please help!
You are correct. You sc2tog at the end of each row. 🙂
Is there a reason the 1st dk gray stripe is only 19 rows wide and all the others are 20 rows wide
In the beginning instructions, +16 chains is giving me issues.
•If you would like to make this blanket smaller or larger start with a
beginning chain that is a multiple of 17. For example: 17, 34, 51, 68, 85, 102,
119, 136, 153, 170, 187, 204, 221, 238, 255, 272, 289, 306, 323, and 340.
Then add on an additional 16 chains to which ever length you choose
Why do I have to add an additional 16 chains t the number of chains already counted for me? I used 153 + 16 and the one end is ok, the other end is a block. Help!
I have tried making this blanket many times.. peaks and valleys are spot on.. my problems is with the endings.. after row 2 when I turn I am opposite.. instead of crocheting up to a peak I am going down to a valley.. the chain counts you say that 101 is what it should be.. so do we not add the extra 16 stitches? so if I choose to do say 153 I don’t need to add the additional stitches? I am wondering if that is where my “opposite pattern” is happening..
Is there a double crochet version of this blanket? could we possibly convert it to a double and chain 4 at the end then dc in the 3rd stitch?
The chain 101 is with the 16 extra st’s added. I used an initial chain of 85. Hope this helps!
You could try this with a DC just chain 3 at the beginning of every row instead of 1.
Thanks very much for the extra help and the offer to help. Can I email you a photo? I have gone over it several times and at a loss of what I’m doing wrong.
You are welcome and sure! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for the replies Krista. I am at a total loss now withthe pattern and just very confused. I think I did row one correctly. But now part way through row two my peak is mot lining up with the peak of row one. Yet all my counts seem to be correct. I really want to make this blanket cause it’s simply amazing.
When you are done with row 1 you will turn your work, Chain 1 and single crochet the first 2 stitches together, then single crochet once in the next 5 stitches, in the next stitch you will single crochet 3 times (it should line up with your peak from the row before) Also I am going to make a new video with the right instructions so that will help too! In the meantime do you have a picture you could show me?
In the directions you say skip two stitches, but in the video you stitch two together, which one do I do?
You do both! 🙂 You start each row with a single crocheting together two stitches, then as you are working your blanket you will skip 2 stitches to make the dip in the chevron blanket.
Then I am very confused. In the video to make the dip you say sc2tog instead of skipping two stitches. So that is what I did for my first row. And it finished just fine with the 5 sc and then sc2tog. Now here is where I start to feel like and idiot and things get hinky. I have turned and then chain one to start my second row…. in the second stitch from the hook I do and sc2tog and sc 5. Then I do a three in one (which is currently at the center top of the previous peak. I continue on with 7 sc and then do an sc2tog and sc 7. Here is where I have an issue, my next 3sc in one is not at the peak of the valley but slightly off the the side.
It is my understanding that the vallies should be matching up correctly so I’m at a complete loss.
Hi Derrick, You are correct! I messed up on the video. I have another chevron pattern where you need to sc2tog to make the dip. I will take that down and redo it so it is correct. 🙂 Thanks for finding this for me!
Hey Krista, are you supposed to sc2tog at the beginning and end of every single row? And if so why not just write the pattern as “row 1-19” since row 2 just says to repeat row 1 and row 3-19 says to repeat row 2? Isn’t row 2 the and 3 and so on the same as row 1? Sorry I’m just confused with the way this pattern is written.. hope you can help because I really love this blanket 😀
Because with row 1 you are working technically in chains not stitches. 🙂 Hope this helps 🙂
You are such a talent! The colours work so well together. I am wondering what choice of yarn you would use to make this blanket for cold locations, preference for soft and warm? For all of us who love to crochet, thank you for making this pattern freely available.
I would do tints of blue ,grey and white if it was me 🙂 Hope this helps and thank you for the kind words! 🙂
I don’t understand what you mean sc2tog ( in second chain from hook)
To sc2tog (decrease) insert hook into stitch and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next stitch and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook. Hope this helps! 🙂
Rows 3-20 say: “ch 1, repeat row 2” and then row 40 it states “repeat row 2”. Row 2 starts with a ch 1. Is that ch1 duplicated for rows 3-20? Or do you only chain 1 for every turn? Thanks for the pattern, stalked your Instagram and love your colors and designs.
I fixed that error. You will just ch 1 only 1 time each row 🙂 Thank you for the kind words!!
Thank you! Perfect, cannot wait to start this after I finish my bunny projects!
Hi! I love this pattern and am excited to make it, but I am wanting to make a bigger size and I was wondering if the PDF of the pattern that is available for purchase on etsy has more specific instructions for making it in a larger size, such as the number of ch and yarn needed for a specific size (like a twin). Thank you!
Thank you for the kind words! The PDF pattern doesn’t have specific yarn yardage recommendations or specific sizes at this time.
Hi! This is literally the first time I have ever tried to crochet something (probably not the best choice for my first project), but I want to make sure I understand the instructions. When you state to “work in both loops” for row 1 is that for the entire row or just the sc2tog? I apologize if this seems like a silly question! Thank you in advance for any help/clarification provided!
It’s for the entire row 🙂 Have fun on your first project! 🙂
First time crocheter and I must say, I love your blanket. I started crocheting it yesterday 🙂 Looks great so far. Thanks for the pattern Krista!
Hi Mai! I am glad you love it! It is a favorite of mine too! 🙂
Love this blanket!!! I would like to crotchet this for my son, however, I would like to make it 5ft X4 foot. I cannot figure out how long to make my first chain. I have read your instructions on how to make a larger blanket and I am just not understanding it. Please advise as I LOVE this blanket and really want to make it. Thank you.
Hi Janelle! You will need to chain multiples of 17 then add 16 ch’s to whatever size you chose. Hope this helps!
Starting with rows 3-19, you say to ch 1, repeat row 1, but no turn. Is the turn implied or how would this be executed?
I had this question too! Was it ever answered?! Thank you!
You will need to turn after every row. 🙂
I loved your color combination so much that I am duplicating it using the vanna’ s choice yarn. It is looking great but is curling. Did you have this problem?
Yes it happens with this pattern. I would recommend blocking to get it to lay flat. Hope this helps!
Should you always have 7 stitches in the beginning and at the end? I seem to have 9! Should I decrease to get 7 again?? Please help, I love this pattern!!
I am a fairly new crocheter. I have my chain and the foundation row. Everything looks great. I turned to start my second row. However, if I were to follow the pattern by repeating the 2nd row exactly as the first my first 3 in one sc would not be in the 2nd st If the sc3 of the previous row. What am I doing wrong here?
You may have miscounted your stitches. It is so easy with chevrons to miss a stitch. I would recount and count again to double check. If you have a picture I could see that may help too.
Are you supposed to add an extra 16 to the 101? My blanket is only measuring to 18 inches and I’m using the same size hook and brand of yarn.
No 101 is with the 16 added on. You should have approx 16 sts for every 4″ of blanket. Hope this helps! 🙂
how wide and long are the measurements on this chevron lap afghan? Will help determine if I need to go make a long starter chain. Thanks. Love the colors!
Finished Size is approximately 38” x 24” when using a beginning ch of
101 (I use this size as a throw over the back of chair )
Can you tell me, is the width of the blanket 38 inches or 24 inches? Also could you tell me what the height of one chevron is. Mine is just shy of 7 inches ( 20 rows) and I’m wondering how that compares. I need to buy more yarn and am trying to figure it out. I was trying to make my blanket double the width, but I chained 255 and my blanket is only 53 inches wide. I know I crochet tight and I’m using a bigger hook.
HI Peggy, The width was 24″ with the lap blanket size. Hope this helps 🙂
Thanks so much. Are you able to measure the height of a 20 row chevron at all? Also, I’m using a 6.5 mm hook. Do you think using an even larger one would help the tightness?
Thanks again. I was amazed and grateful for the promptness of your reply. 🙂
