I love they way chevrons look in projects so much that last year I used the technique to make my Neutral Chevron Blanket. I also designed a unique dishcloth with this exact pattern too! Now back to the crochet chevron tutorial.
The Yarn for This Chevron Pattern
I used a worsted weight yarn for my example, but if you have a different weight yarn that would work perfectly too! Just be sure to use the corresponding hook size to the weight of yarn you are using.
I would suggest trying Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice Yarn to get a result that is similar to this tutorial.
This yarn is made by Lion Brand, and is a Weight 4 – Medium yarn.
Fiber: 100% Acrylic
Yardage: 156m / 171 yds
Hook: 5.5 mm (I-9)
Substitute: Lion Brand Heartland

Love this pattern going to try to make throw for husband. Love your videos.
I am so glad you like this pattern, and happy crocheting!!!
hi iwant to know how many stitches for a baby and a single bed, thank u
Hi! You can use our blanket sizing calculator to expand this tutorial into different blanket sizes. Happy Crocheting!
Step 2: Single Crochet in next 5st, then do 3 sc in next stitch (hump)
It isn’t really 3 single crochet stitches in the next stitch is it? It is a chain 3, then single crochet into the next stitch.
There are 3 single crochets in one stitch, which creates the “hump” of the chevron.
NO, the stitches are NOT connected to the cast on row. I’ve looked at the photograph over and over. I’ve copied it and blown it up. It look plainly like three cast on stitches, attached before and after with single crochet. Help !! LOL
The 3 single crochets form the top of the chevron and are worked into one stitch of the row below. Row 1 is worked into the foundation row chain stitches, Row 2 would be worked into Row 1’s single crochet stitches. I am not sure when you say cast on row and cast on stitches what you are referring to (unless you mean the foundation chain or chain stitches), since that is a term that is used in knitting. I’d love to understand your question better, so I can help.
Oh, you’re so right, it is the Row 1 stitches, not the foundation chain. I did use the wrong terminology. I apologize. What I’m questioning is “There are 3 single crochets in one stitch, which creates the “hump” of the chevron”. I understand they create the “hump” but those 3 single crochet stitches are NOT done in one stitch, they are a chain of 3 stitches, started at the last stitch of the 5 sc before them, and then anchored in the first of the 7 sc after the “hump”. The three stitches are not all single crocheted into one stitch. Not in the photograph.
The three single crochet stitches are crocheted into one stitch, which is 3 individual single crochets worked one after another into one stitch from the row before to form the top of the chevron. A chain
of 3 stitches (which are connecting loops) would create an open space, and that is not what this is. I promise the photograph shows 3 single crochets worked into one stitch, since I crocheted it and took the picture.
I have the pattern pretty down. Just off on my stick at the count. I know it’s a sample that you have the tutorial on of 33. But it says add 16 more stitches at the end of what ever length you may choose. I am wondering why mine isn’t coming out and why did you only have 33 on your sample above I guess without the 16 adde stitches recommended. Can you please help? Many thanks in advance!
The pattern is worked in a multiple of 17 plus an additional 16 stitches to whatever multiple of 17 you pick. So, I did a chain count of 17 plus 16 stitches for a total of 33 stitches for this example. Hope this helps. 🙂
I’m making your chevron ripple pattern, using 2 strands of yarn together, using a 9 mm hook, is this the right amount of chains to use 17 + 16 . Thank you
You are correct. 🙂 Happy Crocheting!
I really love this pattern I made it for my grandson for his baby shower gift. Now I want to make a house warming gift for my great niece. I want to make it twin size. But I usually over buy for most thing. Can you tell me how to gauge the amount of yarn I should need for a twin size. Ball park figure will do. Thanks for the wonderful patterns.
After many many years of trying to do this pattern ,I’m so please that I came apron your pattern because I have mastered it .A BIG THANKYOU
You are welcome Nikki! Glad to help!
Gosh I’m in exactly the same situation. I’ve been making chevron practice swatches for 2 days now. I believe I’ve been counting diligently but still wind up with more stitches when it comes to the “SC 5 SC2TOG” at the very end. Can’t figure out where I’m slipping ‘em in!
I started doing the chevron pattern and am finding that I am ending up with extra stitches at either end. Should this be happening or should I consistently have 5 extra stitches at the end of my rows?
Brilliant. So glad to see this gives me something to look forward on Christmas as i am alone thanks a million
Hi! Yep! That should read repeat row 2 & 3! lol Thanks for finding it! 🙂
Making a blanket for myself as a throw when I have my nana naps in the afternoon and have been looking for a boarder stitch to finisjnig off with and the chevrron stitch should make a nice finish.
Still have a wee way to go with the blanket size approv 5 ft 6 inches got about 2 feet to go to get to start the boarder.
Love this tutorial. I have been wanting to make a ripple for a long time . I’m making one now to fit on my king size bed in our r.v. thank you for this easy to understand tutorial!
I am so glad you like it! Happy Crocheting!
Sc2tog takes 2 stitches. Yarn over then into stitch pull up 2 stitch on hook y.o. into next stitch pull up 3 stitches on hook y.o pull thru all 3 stiches.
Hope this helps
I to am confused about the two tong stitch.
Like Judy, I too am confused on how to do a sc2tog. Help please.
Here is a Youtube video that may help. 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pDYfohDnKQ&t
Super easy pattern for a beginner. My granddaughter was thrilled with the blanket I made for her.
I am so glad you liked Vivien and that your granddaughter liked it! Happy Crocheting! 🙂
I loved this ripple blanket, The pattern was super easy to follow and as a beginner I needed the easy pattern. Thanks a million. My granddaughter loved the blanket I made for her bed.
I am crocheting again with my neighbors help. So glad I found your site. Your tutorial for my Chevron Afghan is a great aid.
Being a returning novice it is easier following instructions.
Will advise when finished. Thanks so much.
Doing your chevon now, I love how easy you explain the pattern. Had to start over again a few times but I’m learning fairly quickly.
Thank-you so much for making this easy for me. Always wanted to learn to do this but never got it right.
Would you also have an easy to understand on how to do the ripple?
Many, many Thanks:
I am so glad you like the pattern! I actually do have a couple ripple patterns. 🙂 https://easycrochet.com/2016/04/12/ombre-ripple-crochet-blanket/ & https://easycrochet.com/2016/08/19/baby-ripple-crochet-blanket/
Thank you! Very easy to understand.
You are welcome Susan! 🙂
So at the top how do I make the Hump? For some reason I’m not getting that part,,,Thank you so very much
I don’t understand sc2tog. Can you help me?
HI, I am confused, hopefully you can help me, I really like this pattern. I am trying to make a 5ftx 2in throw and really confused on how many chains to start out with.
Has anyone done this in HDC? When I try my peaks are not lining up every time. They seem to go back and forth, It is very frustrating.
Hi so at the end of each row it says there should b 5sts and a sc2tog… And every row the number at the end for me keeps getting smaller?
It shouldn’t. What numbers are you ending up with?
I made a. Twin size blank about 23years ago so I’m grateful you put it out.
I made a twin size blanket about 23 years ago and don’t remember how I made it. Thanks so much for sharing so I can make another one!
Just a suggestion to help keep it flat. Crochet through the back of the stitch. My gramma taught me this one years ago and I have just picked it up again.
Do you TURN at the end of
each row, then ch1?
You could do it either way 🙂
Holy Moly!!!! I have been so intimidated of the chevron. You made it SOOOOOO EASY!!! A million thanks!!
Thank you Sarah! 🙂
I hope I can do this as quickly as it sounds and looks. I am in the midst of starting 2 for a set of twins, (girl-boy). My main question is how many humps are good for a baby Afghan, or chains. Thanks for your help and time. Cathy from Indy.
I would make your blanket about 36″ long so maybe try a ch 119 then add the additional 16 Ch’s to start 🙂 Have fun!!! 🙂
Hi! Absolutely LOVE this pattern and am going to make a blanket from it. 🙂 Is there any way this can also be done in half-double crochet? Thanks!
Just follow the pattern as written but use HDC instead 🙂 Should work perfect!
I love the pattern almost as much as I absolutely LOVE your crochet hook!! Where did you get it? I have a thing for hedgehogs. 🙂 🙂
Thank you! I got it from the Polymer Clay Shed on Etsy. 🙂
Is there a good way to finish the project? Also, I’m making a blanket and for some reason the edges are all folding over, and scrunching up in the middle. It won’t lay flat. How can I fix that?
You may need to block it for it to lay flat completely. Hope this helps!
What do you mean by block it?
Here is some information that may help you 🙂 http://www.lionbrand.com/faq/481.html
