Learn how to make a 70s style easy chevron crochet pattern today with the free chevron blanket tutorial below!
If you can single crochet, then you can make this blanket in no time at all! Read on down to get started so that you can start enjoying this simple chevron pattern.
I am so excited for you to try this chevron design! It is so fun to work up, is a really easy project and looks fantastic as a blanket!
This Single Crochet Chevron Blanket Pattern is a Must-Have!
The main reason 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 that is super easy to master which makes learning a chevron pattern like this as easy as pie!
Since this single stitch crochet chevron pattern is so easy to learn it is excellent for a new (or veteran) crocheter looking to try something a little different. You will love it, promise!
The simple stitch (not to mention single crochet) repeat is one that I promise you can master in no time at all! It is designed almost like my other pattern the Crochet Chevron Neutral Blanket Pattern, which is another excellent and easy to learn chevron pattern if you are in the mood to make more chevron blankets.
The Yarn That’s Perfect for This Chevron Blanket
For this chevron patterned blanket, I used the Impeccable Yarn brand from Michael’s. To get similar results to my design use worsted weight acrylic yarn in desired colors of your choice. I recommend Vanna’s Choice as a great alternative.
Shop here to find your favorite color.
This 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 don’t think you’ll be disappointed with either. Vanna’s Choice just so happens to be my favorite acrylic yarn to use for all of my blankets.
This Crochet Ripple Afghan is Worked up in the Back Loop
For this single crochet blanket, we will be crocheting in just the back loop of each stitch, which will create an excellent ridged texture. The back loop is easy to find on a stitch.
If you are looking at a stitch from the top and see the two loops, you will want to work into the one furthest away from you (AKA the back loop!).
How to Change the Size of a Chevron Blanket
You will need to use a starting chain in a multiple of seventeen to start, then chain an additional fifteen to whatever length starting chain you picked to start your blanket.
It is the perfect blanket to customize to just the size you need!

A Chevron Blanket is Great for Beginners
I recommend for beginner crocheters to give this chevron blanket pattern a try (and these blankets too) because of the simple single crochet stitches that are throughout. This pattern is the perfect beginner project.
To spice it up I added a bit of texture by crocheting only in the back loop of every stitch, which creates a ridge and gives the blanket a bit more character. It’s a win, win.

Single Crochet Blanket Chevron Pattern
Skill Level: Easy
- Any yarn (I used a worsted weight four yarn): 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: To weave in ends at the end of your project
- Sc2tog: Single Crochet two Together
- Sc: Single Crochet
- Written in standard US 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) and throughout the rest of the pattern.
ROW 2 continued: Chain 1, skip the first stitch, sc2tog

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.
