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.

  • Norma Howard says:

    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.

  • Judith says:

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


  • Natasha says:

    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?

  • Donna says:

    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.

  • Donna says:

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

  • Angela says:

    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!

    • Leelee says:

      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.

  • Darlene says:

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

  • Debbie says:

    How did you like the yarn for this blanket?

  • Becky says:

    Are rows worked in back loop only or both loops?

  • Margaret says:

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

    • Leelee says:

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

  • Joyce says:

    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.

  • Michelle Goulder says:

    Is this US dc so UK tc?

  • Kay says:

    How many ounces are the skeins if yarn you used?

  • Lillian says:

    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,

  • Christy says:

    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!

  • Violet says:

    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?

    • Leelee says:

      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.

  • Amanda says:

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

  • Jan says:

    thank for this pattern.

  • Nancy says:

    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!

  • Becky says:

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

  • Suzanne says:

    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.

  • TigerKim says:

    Very pretty pattern; thanks for sharing…and I signed up for your emails.
