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.
Are You Ready to Get Started on Your New Favorite Baby Blanket Pattern?

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.
- 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.

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.
