Projects :: Chevron Crochet Pattern
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
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.

Yay, thanks for the pattern! :)ReplyDelete
such a pretty pattern! If you sell them, please let me know :)ReplyDelete
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 :)ReplyDelete

Thanks Elycia! I was just looking up tutorials for this on YouTube today before it crapped out lol! I'm so glad you posted this because I really like how your blanket came out. :)ReplyDelete
I looked for so many patterns that were comparable to your blanket, but none compared! Hopefully this isn't too difficult for beginners.ReplyDelete
I love this! Thanks soooo much for sharing the pattern. I can't wait to get my mom working on this for me!ReplyDelete
I have been wanting to make a chevron afghan for a while, feeling totally inspired now! Thank you!!ReplyDelete
I was planning to make a chevron blanket this winter, thanks for sharing the pattern!ReplyDelete
Hi there, I want to make this smaller! Do you know what multiples you need to chain to do this?ReplyDelete
I am making a navy and white for my son. It's my second one. I absolutely love this pattern! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
found this pattern a couple of days ago through ravelry and i love how easy it is! thanks so much for sharing! this will be one of my projects while i'm down at the beach.ReplyDelete
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?ReplyDelete
I'm really sorry! I don't know! The pattern doesn't say!Delete
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...Delete
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!ReplyDelete

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!
I've only tried this pattern with single crochet because I like the way it looks that way.Delete
UK single crochet or US single crochet?ReplyDelete
US single crochet!ReplyDelete
THANK YOU! My husband asked for an afghan with "no holes" and since it's single crochet, this is just the thing since I'm a SUPER loose crocheterDelete
Thank you for this! My SIL is expecting and I saw that she'd pinned a black & white chevron afghan so I'm going to surprise her with this one.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I love that it has no holes because of being all sc stitches. I bet it takes a long time with the small stitches, so I might try it with a bulky yarn.ReplyDelete
