The Yarn That Is Perfect for This Chevron Crochet Blanket
This colorful chevron blanket consists of 7 different colors; color-blocked in a unique chevron pattern worked in the back loops only. Crocheting into the back loops of a stitch creates an excellent ridged look and gives projects a great texture. It’s always fun to be a little different when crocheting!
I used my favorite yarn, Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice for this project, but any worsted weight yarn would work! Vanna’s choice is a four weight yarn (or worsted weight like I mentioned before) that is available in a huge variety of colors. Chances are that if you are looking to make your chevron blanket in a specific color of yarn you will find it in this yarn line.

The Stitches For a Chevron Blanket
To crochet this chevron blanket you will need to know how to single crochet! Since this chevron technique is easy to learn and uses only single crochets for the entire project, it is perfect for beginners. Learn more about the single crochet stitch below with my free stitch tutorials.
