An Easy Chevron Pattern Crochet Blanket
This single crochet chevron blanket is easy, and it is a blanket that you must make. The main reason that I love this blanket is that it is made with a simple, beginner-friendly stitch…. the single crochet!
The single crochet stitch is a basic stitch. This stitch is super easy to master, which makes learning a chevron pattern using this stitch easy!
This single stitch crochet chevron pattern is so easy to learn. This easy chevron pattern is excellent for those who are new to crochet or those who are experienced with crochet and are looking to try something a little different. Either way, you will love it! I promise!
The simple stitch repeat, not to mention single crochet, is one that you can absolutely master in no time at all. It is designed almost like my other pattern, the Crochet Chevron Neutral Blanket Pattern. This is another excellent and easy to learn chevron pattern, if you are in the mood to make more chevron blankets.
The Perfect Yarn for This 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!
My personal favorite, 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.
It 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 the furthest away from you, which is the back loop!
Changing the Size of a Chevron Blanket
It is easy to change the size of this chevron blanket! Use the steps below to learn more.
How to Change the Size of this Blanket
- You will need to use a starting chain in a multiple of seventeen to start.
- Multiples of 17 are 34, 51, 68, 85, 102, 119, 136, 153, 170, 187, 204, 221, 238, 255, 272, 289, 306, 323, 340 etc. You will chain one of these numbers that are all a multiple of 17 for your starting chain.
- Next, you will chain an additional fifteen to whatever length of starting chain you picked from above to start your blanket.
This is the perfect blanket to customize to just the size you need! You can use our blanket sizes chart to get a perfect size for your chevron blanket every time.
The purpose for your blanket will determine the size that you want to make, for example if you’d like to crochet a throw blanket this chart can help! 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. While this is our most popular chevron pattern, we have other free blanket patterns using it 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.
Crochet Stitch Abbreviations
- ch(s) = chain(s)
- st(s) = stitch(es)
- sc(s) = single crochet(s)
- sk = skip
- sc2tog = single crochet two together
- rep = repeat
How to Single Crochet Together
Single Crochet Two Together (sc2tog)
- Insert hook into designated stitch
- YO (yarn over), pull back through the stitch
- Insert hook into next stitch, YO and pull back through the three loops on your crochet hook
- You have now single crocheted two stitches together!
- This pattern is written in standard U.S. terms.
- I recommend counting, then recounting your stitches for each row. It is easy to skip or add a stitch with a chevron pattern design.
- Starting with Row 2 the pattern is worked in the back loop only.
- I recommend working up a small swatch of 17 +15 to practice on before starting a big blanket project.
Starting Chain: Ch a multiple of 17, then ch an additional 15 chs to that multiple.
Row 1: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook. 1 sc in each of the next 5 chs, 3 sc in the next ch, 1 sc in each of the next 7 chs. * skip 2 chs, 1 sc in next 7 chs. 3 Sc in next ch. 1 sc in of next 7 chs.
Rep 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, ch 1, sk the first stitch, sc2tog, 1 sc in next 5 sts, 3 sc in the next st, * 1 sc in next 7 sts, sk next 2 sc. 1 sc in each of the next 7 sts,.3 sc in the next st.
Rep from * across until you reach the last 7 sts. 1 Sc in the next 5 sts, sc2tog in the last 2 sts, turn.
Row 3: Ch 1, sc2tog, 1 sc in the next 5 sts, 3 sc in the next st, * 1 sc in next 7 sts, skip next 2 scs, 1 sc in each of the next 7 sts, 3 sc in next st, repeat from * across until you reach last 7 sts, 1 sc in the next 5 sts, sc2tog in the last 2 sts, turn.
Finishing: Repeat row three (3) for the reminder of the blanket pattern until you reach the blanket size you’d prefer.
