Free Chevron Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

Free Chevron Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

I love the look of chevron patterns for baby blankets, but I’m not a huge fan of the pointy ends. That is why I came up with this pattern for a baby blanket with a tiny bit of wave to it. Enough to add the gorgeous chevron effect, but the ends only have a slight curve – barely even noticeable in my opinion.

This pattern is also great if you are just starting to crochet or want an easy, repetitive, quick to build project.

I have written out and posted the free pattern for this baby blanket below on this page.  However, you can also purchase the PDF file for easy printing and reading (and to support me to be able to continue to post patterns on this blog).  If you’d like to purchase the PDF file, click the “Purchase PDF File” button below.

    Thank you for this beautiful pattern I can’t wait to get started. We just found out what my daughter was having on yesterday. “A Girl” and I love the Chevron but not a fan of the pointy ends either.

      Glad to hear! Enjoy the pattern and congratulations on your future granddaughter!

    I love the chevron baby blanket pattern. What is the repeat pattern group measurements (ie; 6+2)? I want to be able to make a larger sized blanket.
    Thanks
    Norma

    • Reply Leelee March 3, 2016 at 8:01 am

      Hi there, It is a multiple of 8 plus 3 for the beginning chain.

  • Reply Judith February 27, 2016 at 12:35 pm

    I love this pattern. Thanks for accepting me. I am wondering what size yarn you are using?
    Thanks

      Hi Judith, You will need worsted weight yarn for this blanket 🙂

  • Reply Natasha March 1, 2016 at 11:00 am

    Love this pattern – thank you for sharing it! Very unique, and I adore the colour scheme.

    If I wanted to make a blanket twice the size, could I just double everything – so ch. 278 instead of 139 and just repeat all the stitches to the end?

    Can you tell me what the multiples are for this? I want to use a different yarn/hook size and will need to figure it out so I can get the size I want.

    Is it multiples of 15 + 4 for turning? I’m stuck on figuring this one out!

    What is the weight of the yarn you used? I can’t find the exact yarn you used and I’m wondering if something like Red Heart Super Saver is too heavy, and if I should use a baby or sport weight yarn instead.. Thanks in advance!

    • Reply Leelee March 3, 2016 at 5:59 pm

      Hi Angela, I used worsted weight yarn for this blanket. You will probably want to try something soft but a baby or sport weight will be too light.

  • Reply Darlene March 9, 2016 at 9:22 am

    At the end of first row, i have 1 dc. Is that correct? If not what is the end? Love the pattern.

    • Reply Leelee March 9, 2016 at 10:10 am

      No, if you have worked the pattern correctly, you will end with 2DC in the last chain.

  • Reply Debbie March 9, 2016 at 9:40 am

    How did you like the yarn for this blanket?

    • Reply Leelee March 9, 2016 at 10:12 am

      I was happy with it. Very soft and the price was great. I liked that it is machine washable too.

    Are rows worked in back loop only or both loops?

    • Reply Leelee April 5, 2016 at 2:22 pm

      Both loops

  • Reply Margaret March 26, 2016 at 8:28 pm

    Im not sure I’m understanding the [2DCTOG] twice. Can you explain. I know to decrease. Everything I’ve seen is DC2TOG

    • Reply Leelee April 5, 2016 at 2:38 pm

      You need to double crochet two stitches together, twice. So you are decreasing 4 stitches into two stitches.

  • Reply Joyce March 31, 2016 at 8:15 am

    I am anxious to get started on this beautiful stitch pattern. I do have one question though. After I do the initial Row 1, will I only be crocheting Row 2 throughout the remainder of the pattern or do I alternate row 1 and row 2? After row 1, the directions say to repeat row 2 until 9 rows are complete, then next color says to crochet 9 rows in pattern (meaning row 1 and row 2 or just row 2)?
    Sorry, I know even simple patterns are difficult to write as everyone interprets them differently.
    Thank you.

    • Reply Leelee April 5, 2016 at 2:15 pm

      Hi Joyce, I meant that you simply repeat row 2. Row 1 is just for working on the foundation chain.

    Hi,
    Is this US dc so UK tc?

      Yes, US DC 🙂

    How many ounces are the skeins if yarn you used?

    • Reply Leelee August 15, 2016 at 1:41 pm

      5.5 ounces or 100 grams

  • Reply Lillian July 3, 2016 at 10:53 pm

    Thank u so very much for this pattern. I made it for my daughter and it turned out beautifully!!! It was so very simple to make and the instructions were especially easy to understand. She chose colors I would never have chosen but it turns out she knew what she wanted and it looks great. Again. Thank you,

    I’m very excited to find this pattern. I’ve done a few chevron stitch baby blanket but I wanted something softer. I’m starting my new blanket today. Thanks for the pattern!

  • Reply Violet July 31, 2016 at 6:32 pm

    I started on this blanket and I’ve done 3 rows. Does it start off really wavy? It’s not laying flat like a blanket. Just wondering if this is normal since it’s starting out?

    • Reply Leelee August 15, 2016 at 1:16 pm

      It is definitely wavy, but it should lie flat… are you perhaps using a yarn that is very thick or a smaller hook? That could make a big difference in how the blanket lies. I would recommend using the same yarn that I used to make the blanket for the same results.

  • Reply Amanda August 11, 2016 at 8:05 am

    Do you DC2TOG twice in the same stitch or do you DC2TOG twice with two different stitches?

    • Reply Leelee August 15, 2016 at 1:26 pm

      Hi Amanda, it is for the two following stitches (so not both in the same stitch).

    • Reply Violet August 15, 2016 at 8:06 pm

      I DC2TOG in 2 different stitches. Do I need to do it in one single stich?

  • Reply Jan November 5, 2016 at 11:42 am

    thank for this pattern.

  • Reply Nancy January 18, 2017 at 7:40 am

    I’m looking for an easy baby blanket pattern, and one where I can just get my momentum going and not have to think too hard. 🙂 I’m an experienced but out of practice crocheter. I’ve watched the video on the 2DCTOG stitch three times and I’m not sure I understand what the purpose is of it – is it to make the top of the wave? Will it become obvious once I do it, lol? Thanks for the pattern. Your website is the best I’ve encountered!

  • Reply Becky February 16, 2017 at 9:23 pm

    Does Row 2 end with 2dc or the second of two dctog?

  • Reply Suzanne May 18, 2017 at 11:16 am

    This is now my “go to” afghan. I have made 2 with vastly different colors and they both came out beautifully. One was black with neon stripes, one bright pastels with white. Love it. Thanks for sharing.

    I love your designs, Leelee. Very pretty, and beautiful colors. I will say though, that this is the first time I’ve ever seen dog2tog done in this fashion. I watched your video and carefully examined what you did. I suppose you can certainly do the stitch this way, and it may even give a little “less” of a curve to the fabric. I will have to try it myself by making a swatch, and see how it turns out. You have invented something new!

    • Reply Sarah B November 15, 2017 at 10:53 am

      I was just about to type the same response!

      I would try to go back and make a note that your 2DCTOG is different from “traditional” methods. I followed the pattern without watching the video and couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t looking the same.
