This single crochet chevron blanket is easy, and it is a blanket that you must make.

Finding the Perfect Yarn for a Chevron Blanket
The best type of yarn for this chevron blanket is a worsted weight yarn or medium four weight yarn. I used the Impeccable Yarn brand from Michael’s, which comes in a wide variety of colors. The many options for colors to choose from will allow you to make your chevron blanket truly yours! The color choices will also make it easy to customize this blanket as a gift.
Need a substitute yarn? If you would like to get similar results to the blanket I made using fall colors, I recommend Vanna’s Choice as a great alternative. It has the same weight as the Impeccable Yarn and comes in a lot of the same colors.
Take a look below to find a favorite color to use to make your chevron blanket!
The Vanna’s Choice yarn is fantastic. It holds up well to my kids’ daily antics and washes beautifully. If you cannot find Vanna’s Choice, we would suggest Caron Simply Soft, which is a beautiful yarn with fantastic drape!
I do not think you will be disappointed with either yarn choice. Vanna’s Choice just so happens to be my favorite acrylic yarn to use for all of my blankets.
This Crochet Chevron Blanket is Worked up in the Back Loop
For this single crochet, chevron blanket pattern, we will be crocheting in just the back loop of each stitch. This will create an excellent ridged texture in your chevron blanket.
The back loop is easy to find on a stitch. If you are looking at a stitch from the top, you will see the two loops. You will want to work into the loop that is furthest away from you, which is the back loop!
Changing the Size of a Chevron Blanket
You will need to use a starting chain in a multiple of seventeen to start. Then, you will chain an additional fifteen to whatever length of starting chain you picked to start your blanket.
This is the perfect blanket to customize to just the size you need! You can use this blanket sizes chart to get a perfect size for your chevron blanket every time. The purpose for your blanket will influence the size that you want to make. If you are making the blanket for a baby, you can easily review the chart to help you choose a smaller size. You can also use the chart as a helpful tool to help make a larger blanket to better suit your needs.
Chevron Blanket: Great for Beginners
I recommend anyone who is new to crochet to give this easy, chevron blanket pattern a try, and these blankets, too. This pattern is full of simple, single crochet stitches throughout and is the perfect beginner project.
To spice up this easy, chevron blanket pattern, I added a bit of texture by crocheting only in the back loop of every stitch. This creates a ridge and gives the blanket a bit more character. This is a win-win!

Single Crochet Blanket Chevron Pattern
Skill Level: Easy
- Yarn: I used a worsted weight four yarn. The amount of yarn needed will vary with the weight used, size of the blanket, etc.
- Crochet hook: Choose whatever size the yarn recommends on the yarn label.
- Yarn needle: This will be used to weave in ends at the end of your project.
- Sc2tog: Single Crochet two Together
- Sc: Single Crochet
- Written in standard U.S. terms.
- I recommend counting then recounting your stitches for each row. It is very easy to skip or add a stitch with a chevron pattern design.
BEGINNING CHAIN: Chain a multiple of 17, then chain an additional 15.
ROW 1: 1 Sc in 2nd chain from hook. 1 Sc in each of next 5 chains. 3 Sc in next chain. 1 Sc in each of next 7 chains. * skip 2 chains. 1 Sc in next 7 chains. 3 Sc in next chain. 1 Sc in of next 7 chains. Repeat from * across until you reach the end of the row, turn.
ROW 2: Working in back loops only (see picture below) and throughout the rest of the pattern.
ROW 2 continued: Chain 1, skip the first stitch, sc2tog.
Learn how to sc2tog below.
How to Single Crochet Together
Pick up a loop in each of the two stitches you will be crocheting together, yarn over, and draw through all 3 loops on hook.
Pick up a loop.
Pick up another loop in the next stitch.
You will now have three loops on the hook.
Yarn over and draw through all the loops on the hook.
