    Soft Crochet Chevron Blanket Written Instructions 

    Pattern courtesy of Paula Daniele of CrochetHooksYou

    For a smaller or larger Soft Crochet Chevron Blanket use a multiple of 12 + 3 to create your foundation chain.

    For example: To make my blanket I am using 6 multiples of 12 + 3 (the extra 3 is for the turning chain.)

    12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 3 = 75 chain stitches to start my blanket.

    12 stitches will create one chevron (the ‘V’ shape) as you start working stitches into the foundation chain.

    The size of the blanket I have made was a small one for demonstration purposes.

    Materials Required:

    1 skein of Red Heart With Love Clover Yarn

    1 skein of Red Heart With Love Berry Red Yarn

    5.5mm/I Crochet Hook

    Craft Scissors

    Yarn Needle

    Stitch Marker

    Skill Level

    Easy

    Measurements of my Soft Crochet Chevron Blanket

    Width & Length = 24 x 24 inches/61 x 61 cms

    Stitches & Terms

    ch = chain

    ch-3 = 3 chain stitches made on previous round (at start of row)

    dc = double crochet

    dc2tog = double crochet 2 together

    hk = hook

    rep = repeat

    sl st = slip stitch

    sp = space

    st/s = stitch/es

    Using your first color:

    ch 75 or multiples of 12 + 3 loosely. (Count your foundation chain stitches to be sure you have the right amount to avoid mistakes in the pattern.)

    Place a stitch marker in the 11th ch st counting from the start.

    Row 1: 1 dc into 4th ch from hk, * 1 dc into each of the next 3 ch sts, dc2tog (twice), 1 dc into each of the next 3 ch sts, 2 dc into each of the next 2 ch sts, rep from * until 11 sts remain, take out the stitch marker, 1 dc into each of the next 3 ch sts, dc2tog (twice), 1 dc into each of the next 3 ch sts, 2 dc into the last ch st, turn.

    Place a stitch marker in the 11th dc st at the other end of your work, count ch-3 as your 1st st.

    Row 2: ch 3, 1 dc into the same sp as ch-3, * 1 dc into each of the next 3 dc sts, dc2tog (twice), 1 dc into each of the next 3 dc sts, 2 dc into each of the next 2 dc sts, rep from * until 11 dc sts remain, take out stitch marker, 1 dc into each of the next 3 dc sts, dc2tog (twice), 1 dc into each of the next 3 dc sts, 2 dc into the top of the ch-3, turn.

    Rows 3 – 4: Rep Row 2.

    Finish off. Once you have finished off, turn your work and join 2nd color in by making a sl st into 1st dc. Work over yarn tails as you work on the next row.

    Rows 5 – 8: Rep Row 2.

    Finish off. Once you have finished off, turn your work and join 2nd color in by making a sl st into 1st dc. Work over yarn tails as you work on the next row.

    For all following rows continue on with the above instructions to get the length you desire then ending with the same color yarn that you started with.

    Optional: Add a round of single crochet or half double crochet as an edging to finish off the blanket.
