Easy Chevron Crochet Pattern Baby Blanket
Make this simple chevron baby blanket today with the FREE crochet pattern below! I am thrilled that you decided to check out my chevron crochet blanket pattern, and I can’t wait for you to make it!
I think you’ll love how quick this blanket is to work up since it uses basic stitches.
- Single Crochet (sc)
- Single Crochet Two Together (sc2tog)
The single crochet stitch is a beginner crochet stitch and usually the first stitch that is learned. It is easy to get the hang of this blanket because it is made with a simple stitch repeat consisting of only single crochets.
I tend to use single crochets a lot in my patterns, like these crochet baby blanket patterns. Believe me; if you can make a single crochet, then you are good to go for this project!
Single Crochet Two Together (sc2tog)
When you single crochet two together, you are decreasing the stitches in your project. This technique will be used to help create even edges in this chevron design.
Lion Brand, Feels like Butta is the ideal yarn for a baby crochet blanket! It is amazingly soft and is machine washable and dryable which is a must-have for a blanket that will be used constantly.
It is a 100% polyester yarn and comes in over 30 different yarn colors so that you’ll always be able to find the perfect color.
I used three colors for this chevron blanket, but if you prefer, you can use only one color and have way fewer ends to weave in. Lion Brand also sells bonus bundles of this yarn, so you can get even bigger skeins to use.
- The regular skeins are 100 grams vs. the bonus bundles that have 275 grams. This whole blanket only takes 269 grams, so you could actually get away with using one bonus bundle of this yarn as long as the gauge is followed correctly!
The Yarn Colors in This Crochet Blanket
For this blanket, I decided to go with soft neutral colors. I opted for Ice Blue, Pale Grey & White because I loved how muted they were! You are welcome to pick any colors because I am pretty positive any shade from this line would look AMAZING in a chevron style design.
I’ll explain a bit more about them a little further down, but I couldn’t wait to show you the actual colors!
Feels Like Butta – Ice Blue
Feels Like Butta – Pale Grey
Feels Like Butta – White
Want to use a different yarn? If you’d like to substitute a yarn, any four weight yarn would work, but keep in mind that the Feels like Butta is a thinner four weight yarn so getting the gauge exactly like recommended may be harder. If you have trouble getting the gauge, try a 3 weight yarn instead, like Feels like Heaven.
If you’d like to use a four weight yarn I suggest Vanna’s Choice by Lion Brand, Simply Soft by Caron or Heartland Yarn by Lion Brand, all of which are good choices. I would also follow the recommended crochet hook size on the label, even if this results in a larger blanket.

Crochet Stitches & Abbreviations
- ch = chain
- st(s) = stitch(es)
- sk = skip
- sc2tog = single crochet 2 stitches together (video tutorial below)
- sc(s) = single crochet(s)
- 21 sts x 10 rows = 5” x 5″. Chain 21 and follow pattern as written below for 10 rows.
- Use a hook size that gets you this gauge. All crocheters crochet slightly different, be it tighter or looser, so you may need a different size crochet hook to get the same gauge.
- Learn about why gauge is important when crocheting.
- Approximately 30″ X 35″ inch baby blanket size stroller blanket
- How to Change Sizes: Change sizes by using a multiple of 21 + 20. So, that means that you will need to use a starting chain in a multiple of 21. For example… 21,42,63,84,105,126,147,168,189,210,231,252,273 etc. then add 20 chains to that total.
- or use our Blanket Resizing Calculator.
- The pattern is written in standard US terms
- You will need to be familiar with how to change colors in crochet with this blanket.
The pattern as shown in pictures is using a starting chain of 105 + 20 (or you can use a multiple of 21 +20 starting chains to make it any size)
- Row 1: sk the first ch, sc 2 tog, sc once in each of the next 7 chs, sc 3 x in the next ch, *sc once in each of the next 9 ch’s, sk 2 chs, sc once in each of the next 9 chs sc 3x in the next ch, repeat from * across until you are left with 9 sts, finish by sc once in each of the next 7 chs, sc 2 tog, turn.
- Row 2: Ch 1, sc 2 tog, sc once in each of the next 7 sts, sc 3 x into the next st, *sc once in each of the next 9 sts, sk 2 st’s, sc once in each of the next 9 st’s sc 3x in the next st, repeat from * until you are left with 9 sts, sc once in each of the next 7 sts, sc 2 tog, turn.
- Row 3: – repeat row 2 for the remainder of the pattern, switching yarn colors as indicated below.
Color Pattern for This Blanket
- Row 1 – 6 = grey
- Row 7 – 13 = ice
- Row 14 – 15 = white
- Row 16 – 21 = grey
- Row 22 – 23 = white
- Row 24 – 30 = ice
- Row 31 – 32 = white
- Row 33 – 38 = grey
- Row 39 – 40 = white
- Row 41 – 47 = ice
- Row 48 – 49 = white
- Row 50 – 55 = grey
- Row 56 – 57 = white
- Row 58 – 64 = ice
- Row 65 – 70 = grey
Optional: Border of The Blanket
Do not fasten off yarn at the end of your project.
Join in the white yarn, turn your work and crochet sc’s evenly across the entire last row. At the end of the row work three sc’s into the last st to make a corner, continue sc down the whole side of the blanket evenly into the side of each row.
At every corner, do three sc’s and continue this pattern along the entire outside of the blanket. You can do two rounds of a single crochet border, or just one. Either way would look lovely!
After the border, there is only one thing left to do. Use a yarn needle to weave in all the ends of the blanket.
Blocking Your Blanket
The chevron stitch does tend to take on a wave-like appearance, so I’d recommend blocking your finished blanket.
You can use the blocking techniques I talked about in my post “how to block crochet” to help you with this part.
You Are Done With Your Chevron Blanket for Baby!
See how easy it was? I love how this chevron stitch worked up with the higher peaks, which is what I was hoping to achieve.
I designed something similar, called the Neutral Chevron Blanket, which is also a crochet chevron blanket but with smaller peaks or if you’d like a chevron that works up faster you might like my chunky chevron blanket too! If you love chevron patterns, I’d suggest checking these blankets out, for sure.
I’ve never been good at figuring out the amount of chains to start out with.
Can you please tell me how many chains to start with for a blanket about 45”-50” doesn’t have to be exact??
You’d need to start your blanket with a chain of 209.
Can you suggest other brands of yarn to use with this pattern?
Thanks for the suggestion, Danielle! I added a section about substitution yarns after I mention the Feels like Butta yarn. I hope this helps, and happy crocheting!
Oh my! I definitely skipped over that part. Thanks for the reply!
Love this pattern but am confused by the color chart. Some “color blocks” are 6 rows and others are 7 rows. Is this for a reason or just a choice?
There is no reason, It is just how I designed the pattern. You could change that up if you’d like a more uniform look to the color blocks.
i need to know how to change the yarn colours please 🙂
Keep up the good work !
In the note’s section of the pattern there a link for a tutorial on how to change colors, or you can find it here: https://easycrochet.com/learn-how-to-change-colors-in-crochet/
Hi, when you make the swatch for the gauge it’s just a square or is it like the pattern?
It’s a 5″ x 5″ sample swatch that is worked up by chaining 21 and following the pattern as written for 10 rows.
If you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer them.
I’m having a problem with the ending of each row. I never have enough stitches. I’m sure it’s because of the single crochet two together which I don’t understand. Then of course when I turn the project there’s not enough stitches in the first group. I ripped it out so many times but just can’t get it right.
There is a video tutorial in the sidebar (on desktop) and if you are on mobile it will be at the bottom of the post that explains how to crochet the first few rows. For any clarifications, please feel free to ask!
I am new to crocheting and practiced this pattern and love it!! I am looking to make a wedding gift blanket could you suggest how many stitches I would need and how much yarn I would be needed?
You’d to start with 230 stitches by 100 rows to get a 50″ x 50″ wide blanket. If you are using the same yarn you’d need about 7 to 8 skeins of yarn.
Thank you so much for your quick response!!!
You are welcome!
I’m having trouble changing colours. When I use a new colour the previous color can still be seen in the new row. How did you change the colours? I read the “how to change colors in crochet” article but i’m having trouble since I change the colors at the sc2tog.
When changing with the sc2tog it is very similar to a regular change. Before pulling through the last group of stitches you drop the old yarn color and pick up the new one to pull through to finish. Some color may show through on this but not too much.
I LOVE this blanket and have some yarn I was given. I’m new to crocheting, I’m will this pattern work with bigger yarn/hook, like 8mm hook?
It would work, but it will turn out bigger since you are using a bigger hook. I say go for it and see how it looks. 🙂
Awesome! I’ve been practicing with bernat baby blanket size 8mm and am Justin LOVE with the pattern so far, especially as a beginner! Thank you for posting it!!
You are welcome Lindsay! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask, and also you can join our Facebook group to share your finished blanket too if you’d like.
Hi! First I love this pattern. So easy to follow. I made this pattern as the first his I EVER crocheted and it came out super small (like 23×30). I figured it was bc I was learning and probably right in my gauge. Im now a LOT more experienced and I’m trying to make it again. I m using a 4.5mm hook and I’m not right in my tension at all, but after 4 rows completed, it is only 23” wide and on track to be about 30” long (same as last time). What am I doing wrong. My test square came out and 5”wide and 3.5” high
Hi! The gauge is 21 stitches x 10 rows = 5” x 5″. I’d suggest trying a different sized crochet hook to get that gauge. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Hi thanks, but I still don’t think it’s me. I’m now a 5mm hook and added 21 stitches and I just hit the 30” (I’m now slightly over). There’s not way I could be this far off.
Since we all crochet a little differently or may use a different yarn then suggested in a pattern I always advise using a hook that is best for the individual to get the gauge of a pattern. I’d suggest making a gauge swatch of 21+20 by 10 rows This should yield a size of approximately 10″ wide by 5″ high. You may need to try this with a few hook sizes to get the gauge that’s needed. If you have any more questions I’d be happy to help.
For the three single crochets used in the border, is that for every peak at the top and bottom or just in the principal four outer corners of the blanket? Thanks.
Just the corners. 🙂
Are you crocheting in the back loop only for this blanket? I watched your tutorial and that is what it looks like. Does that really make a difference in how this blanket looks? I am new to crocheting and trying to follow along.
I am crocheting through both loops for this pattern. The first row is usually crocheting through only one loop on patterns because you are working into the initial chain. Hope this helps. 🙂
Thank you for responding so quickly. I am looking forward to starting this blanket.
You are welcome. I hope you enjoy this baby blanket! 🙂
Hi,I have a question about the multiples. The written pattern states multiples of 21+20 but in your tutorial you say 20+21. Which is right?
It’s 21 + 20 for the repeat 🙂
Do you have a video of this being done? I have ripped out and started over about as many times as this thing has stitches. I keep doing something wrong.
I do not but I can make one this week for you! 🙂
Here is the video tutorial! 🙂 https://youtu.be/CUHJ1uDgTJ0
Is it okay to sell a blanket made with this pattern as long as someone credits you and provides a link to your page?
Yes, you can. 🙂 Here are the FAQ’s with more details. https://easycrochet.com/faqs/
Hi couple questions I’m using a 4 hook and do u do 2 together at the beinging of each round? I feel like it’s not lining up correctly? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.
You single crochet 2 together at the beginning and at the end. Let me know if you have any more questions.
When it says to crochet evenly across for the border, does it mean a sc in each stitch or continue with the skipping and increasing like the previous rows?
You would sc into each st along the top and bottom and evenly along the long side of the blanket rows.
I’m gonna try this. Looks beautiful. Can’t wait to get at it. I’ll show u when I finish. Thx.
I am so glad you like it and I can’t wait to see.
You are right, the Feels Like Butta yarn is so nice!
🙂 I am so glad you like it!
Thankyou for this pattern. I love it.
I’m using a larger hook…… a 5mm and I have increased the starting chain but the blanket is still only measuring 25” and not 30” as you stated. I know I’ve still to add the border but am I doing something wrong? Thankyou in advance.
I suggest working up the gauge swatch pattern to get a perfect size. Happy Crocheting!
I have started this blanket, but it is not fillng in, there is a big space between the chain 3 and the skip 2
There is a small space between where the chain two is but it shouldn’t be significant. You can see the space in my images of the blankets to get an idea of what it should look like when it is worked up.
i want to print it and it won;t let me
I suggest using printfriendly.com and occasionally I will have a PDF version of my patterns in my shop https://shop.easycrochet.com/ for purchase.
I have started this project a few times. Is it normal for it to curl so much, or i smy tension too tight?
It shouldn’t curl up that much (maybe a little) I’d try a looser tension to see if that helps. : )
Could you please tell me what sized yarn you use? I’m not seeing it anywhere.
The Feels like Butta yarn is considered a four weight. 🙂
I am excited to make this for my first baby! I am a little newer at crocheting… so maybe it is just me but I don’t get where it says Row 3: – repeat row 3 for the remainder of the pattern switching colors as indicated below.
Should row 3 have other instructions? Or does it mean repeat row 2 for the rest of the pattern?
It was a typo. It is fixed now. Thanks!
Row 3 on this pattern say to repeat Row 3 for the rest of the blanket, changing colors. Shouldn’t it say: Repeat Row 2?
It was a typo. I fixed it. 🙂 Thanks!
I have started this chevron baby blanket three times. I am not getting a V pattern. You said you updated the pattern. Was there an error and where is the update?
The V pattern is created by single crocheting three stitches in one stitch (top of the zig zag) and skipping two stitches at the bottom.
I updated the pattern with the correct hook size (if you are referring to the comment section) It was left out when it was originally published.
What size hook did you use? like the look of this blanket
Opps. I forgot that part! I used a 3.75 mm. I updated the pattern too.
I am interested in making the baby chevron blanket, but I’m not seeing what size crochet hook to use?
I used a 3.75 mm
