Projects :: Chevron Crochet Pattern

Photobucket
Just a disclaimer before we go any further. I did not make up this pattern. It is from a 1973 crochet book called "The Easy Art of Ripple Crochet."

After mentioning the afghan I was working on a couple people were interested in the pattern so I though I would share it. Here goes!

Approximate Size: 42 x 60 inches
Materials:
Worsted weight - 16 oz A, 12 oz B, 12 oz C (for a three colour afghan) or
                          - 22 oz A, 18 oz B (for a two colour blanket)

Crochet Hook: J/6.00mm
Gauge: 3sc = 1 inch

Instructions for 3 Colours
With A ch 183, sc in 2nd st from hk, *1 sc in each of next 14 sts of ch, 3 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 14 sts of ch, skip 1 st, repeat from * across row ending with sc in last st, ch 1, turn.

2nd ROW: Working in back loop of sts throughout, sc in 1st sc, skip 1 st, *1 sc in each of the next 14 sts, 3 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 14 sts, skip 2 sts, repeat from * across row ending last repeat with skip 1 st, sc in last st, ch 1, turn.

Repeat 2nd row throughout working 4 more rows A, 6 rows B, 6 rows C. Repeat these stripes 6 times then work 6 rows A, cut yarn. Finish all ends.

A few notes: When I change colours I do so in the last sc of the row, right before the ch 1. I pull the first loop through with the original colour and then use the colour I'm changing to for the second loop.

Let me know if you have any questions! I'll try my best to help you out if you do.

  3. Aaaahhhh you have no idea how excited I was when I saw you posted this pattern! Yayyyyyy! I remember when you posted about making your own before and I completely fell in love with the pattern. I went on Ravelry to try and find a pattern like it, but nothing seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. But now I have the pattern!!! I'm totally getting yarn to make this now! Thank you thank you thank you for sharing this :)

  5. I looked for so many patterns that were comparable to your blanket, but none compared! Hopefully this isn't too difficult for beginners.

  9. Hi there, I want to make this smaller! Do you know what multiples you need to chain to do this?

    Thanks!

  12. I just made this for someone and would love to make another for myself. I would like mine to be wider though. Do you know what multiples this needs to be chained in?

    Thank you.

    1. I'm really sorry! I don't know! The pattern doesn't say!

    2. you need to know the mutiples stitches...like for example, i have another ripple pattern that says "Chain a multiple of 16 stitches plus 2 stitches." so u can then just add more stitches on your chain in multiples of 16 always adding 2 at the end...i need to know how many for this one...

  13. Have you had any luck doing this with double crochet instead of single? I want to use a woolly yarn, and I'm worried if I do SC it will be too dense. But almost all the chevron patterns I see are SC instead of double...I like yours because the zigzags are so deep. Thanks!

  14. Have you had any luck making this in double crochet instead of single?

    I'm using a woolly yarn and I'm worried single crochet might be too dense. But almost all the chevron blanket patterns I find use SC instead of double...so am wondering if there's a reason for that.

    I like this pattern because the zig zags are so deep!

    Thanks!
