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).

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

    1. 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.

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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,

  9. 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!

  10. 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?

    1. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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!

    1. 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.

  14. Is there any point where you end on something other than 2dc? I am at the 3 of color B and I’ve frogged 3 times because I always end at dc2tog twice. All my other rows end correctly.

    1. It depends on if you are replacing the blue with the silver or with the white…
      I would suggest replacing the blue with the silver so you would need 3.5 to 4 skeins silver and 2 white

    2. Hi Robin.. Is EVERY row supposed to end with 2 dc? Mine does not. Each of my rows end with a different stitch. Also mine is not as wavy as your. What am I doing wrong?

  15. Is there a chart available of this pattern? I am a visual learner, so a chart would REALLY help me to understand the pattern. Thanks!

    1. I’m sorry there isn’t… however, you can watch the video in the post for a tutorial on how to make the stitch if you are a visual learner.

      1. Well, I took your advice and watched the video, or more precisely, I STUDIED the video. I watched it several times, stopping it to draw what I was seeing, and I finally figured it out! I have software that lets me graph patterns, so I was able to produce a picture that really helps me. I could send a copy of it to you, if you’d like. You could include it in the instructions on your website. Let me know where to send it if you want it.

  16. Thank you for this beautiful pattern! I just finished one in Buff Fleck from Red Heart. I’d never done a dc2tog like you did it, so I made mine with the ‘traditional’ method.
    Thanks, again, for sharing this pattern!

  17. Hello! Thank you so much for this pattern! I loved how easy it was (after the first few rows! 🙂 ) and it really looks so nice and sweet for a baby blanket! A couple of observations I made… Mine turned out to be about 21.5″x31.5″ instead of your 26×39.5. Not quite sure why, but I did use an H hook. I’m about to start another one, and maybe use an I instead. Any ideas for me?
    Also, it would be helpful to mention in the pattern somewhere that you’re actually working this pattern vertically instead of horizontally like usual. I was totally confused by how it was turning out until about half way through. I’m going to adjust the pattern a bit so that my next one is striped horizontally.
    And, I only had gotten 2 colors for my blanket, so I did 9 rows color A, 9 rows B, 4 rows A, 4 rows, B, 4 rows A, 9 rows B, and 9 rows A. I like how it turned out with the smaller stripes in the middle! Just in case anyone else wants to just use 2 colors. 🙂
    Thanks again for all your work with this! And for making it free! 😉

  18. Hi! I’m a beginning crocheter, and I had a question about how to figure the chain foundation for the wavy chevron blanket. Is there a certain number of sets that need to be chained like you would for a chevron pattern? And if so, how would I go about finding the correct number to chain? I will be crocheting an adult Afghan measuring 84×84 using 5 different shades of Scheepjes Catona 50g sport weight yarn?
    Also, how many skeins of each of the 5 colors would you recommend purchasing? I’d rather have too much than not enough!
    Thank you for your time!

  19. I love this pattern and have made several. I have seen it with a boarder could you include the direction for the boarder I am working on another one now and would like to add the boarder to make it a little different then my otherwise ones I’ve made for family and friends for their new additions. Again great pattern and have loved using it so easy to understand and love the dc2tog stich. 😁

  20. Hi Leelee, I want to make this blanket into more of an adult size. I’m not sure how many “8’s” to add on. Can you give me an idea of how many inches one set of 8 stitches is? If I doubled the chains it would be too large. What’s your opinion?

    1. Yes, this variation is different… I suggest that you do it the same way for the same look, but it will not throw off your stitch count if you do it the traditional way
