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 ribbed 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 (aka worsted weight) that is available in a considerable variety of colors.

  1. I plan to do a double sized bed blanket – how many balls of wool will I need – based on 7 different colours. I can’t get my head around how to work it out. Thanks in advance

  2. Hi! I was wondering if you have an easy pattern like this one for an adult blanket with taller peaks please? I used to crochet with my mom a very long time ago and I remember counting to 13…
    I made a baby blanket from this pattern. I never knew the sc2tog stitch. I LOVE how clean the edges look.

  3. Hiβ€” I’d like to make this bigger for a friend. For each additional 17 chains, will that add about 4 inches to the width? I’m just trying to calculate so I don’t have to guess! Thanks!

  4. I have a question about this pattern. You said to enlarge,the blanket, use multiples of 17 and then add 16. However, your pattern used 136 stitches, which is a multiple of 17. Why didn’t you add the 16 stitches to the 136?

  5. I am not a advanced crochet person, I know a handful of stitches and can and have made many granny square and ripple Afghans before. Always the edges looked horrible. I like your solution and have started on my first using your pattern. I think I will be extremely pleased with the results. Thank you.

  6. You give a listing of various starting chains. I see you have 136 on this list, but in your pattern you say to chain 135. Which is correct?

  7. Hi there, love the pattern! Thank you for sharing. I have one small suggestion for the end of row 1. Thought it should read sc to last 7 stitches, sc5 then sc2tog. I added 2 extra stitches cause I thought I had to sc7 and then sc2tog. Fun pattern. I’m making a temperature blanket for 2017 with it. Happy Crocheting!

  8. Hi there, Thanks for sharing this pretty pattern. I have one small suggestion for the end of row 1.
    It should crochet to the last 7 stitches, sc in 5 and then sc2tog. I now have one end 2 stitches longer than the other. It’s a fun pattern. Making a temperature blanket for 2017.

  9. I chained 186 .. Are the stitches from the current row supposed to line up with the stitches from the prior row? I’m on row two and seem to be coming up short by about one stitch.

  10. Beautiful blanket. I would like to practice this pattern.
    How many chains would you recommend for a practice piece?

  11. I love this and cannot wait to make it. I would like to make a larger one but I don’t know how to work out how much more wool I’d need x

  12. Did one ball finish one “colour ” row? Aka. You used 7 skeins of vannas choice to complete the project ?

  13. How many should I increase the initial chain in order to make a larger blanket? On another chevron pattern by you it said increase chain by 17’s to get a bigger size. How about this one?

    1. Hi Olivia,
      You can increase by doing multiples of 17 then adding 16 stitches to whatever length you have chosen. I am updating the post with this info. Hope this helps!


  14. How many multiple stitches to make this larger.
    I have been looking for this pattern for quit some
    time and am very happy I found your web site.
    Thanks, Olga
