Remake of an Old Chevron Classic

The most popular crochet pattern so far on my blog is my Neutral Chevron Blanket that I designed a few months ago.

To mix it up a little, I (well, my daughter) convinced myself to remake this same blanket in some fun colors to create the colorful chevron blanket! I hope you like it!

Add Pops of Color to Your Chevron Pattern!

Elise and I decided to redesign the original Easy Crochet chevron design with bright fun colors of her choosing (she is my official creative director) and make it a little bigger.

You are welcome to crochet along with me as a work on it and share updates. I can’t wait for you to make it too!

I ultimately went with Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn because it is easy to find (think local craft stores or Walmart!) and it washes up beautifully, which is a must with children in the house!

Happy Blanket Making!

Colorful Chevron Crochet Blanket Pattern Steps

Start with a beginning chain of 169 with Charcoal

Row 1: working in both loops (in second chain from hook) sc2tog, 1 sc in each of next 5 st, sc 3 times in next st, *1 sc in 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 2 st then sc those last two remaining stitches together (aka sc2tog), turn.

Row 2-11: Ch 1, repeat row 1

Change Color here to Mustard. (If you need help change colors HERE is a tutorial). Ch1, Repeat Row 1 until 11 rows are reached.

Change Color to Kelly Green and Ch 1, Repeat Row 1 for 11 Rows.

Change Color to Purple and Ch 1, Repeat Row 1 for 11 Rows.

Change Color to Linen and Ch 1 Repeat Row 1 for 11 Rows.

Repeat color pattern until you reach your desired length.

11 rows takes approximately 1 skein of yarn and I plan on using 3 skeins of each color for a total of 15 color blocked rows.

Finishing

Fasten off the yarn and weave in the ends with a yarn needle throughout the blanket.

When you are done crocheting your entire blanket weave in all the ends with a yarn needle. Yeah!! Weaving in ends of a blanket definitely isn’t fun but it is a have to do if you’d like a finished blanket.

  1. Hi Krista,
    So I just started my chevron blanket and completed the first row after the foundation chain. I sc2tog and turned, then chained 1. If I start from second chain from beginning to shortens that “leg”of the chevron significantly. If I just sc2tog after I chain, it still shortens that “leg” as well. Is this correct? Will it be shorter? If I keep going this way will I eventually lose that leg? I’ve attempted a chevron before and this happened. Am I misreading the pattern? Please Help! Thank you, Erin

    1. Hi Erin,
      It looks like it is shortening but you add stitches throughout each row that it evens out… I promise! 🙂

  2. I was wondering what the finished sized blanklet was. I tend to crochet tight and would like to make an slightly oversized twin blanket.

    1. Hi Tami!
      I haven’t finished this one yet! It is on my to do list! 🙂 But as soon as I finish I will put up the finished measurements. I have way to many WIP’s laying around!
