Free Crochet Pattern: Chevron Blanket

Free Crochet Pattern Chevron Blanket by Elise Engh

I've been working on this blanket for months and months and I'm sooooooo happy it's finished! I find myself looking at it again and again during the day.  It's so colorful and so happy.  It livens up my mostly brown living room :)

It's made from mostly thrifted yarn (which I did wash  by the way) and my left-over scraps, so it was cheap to make too.

  1. If you repeat these rows, will the chevron pattern continue through the pattern? I've tried a couple chevron patterns and always get confused around the third or 4th repeat!

    1. Yes, the chevron does continue through all of the rows. Just keep repeating row 2.

  2. This is really pretty. Do you have to count extensively or does the pattern become simple enought to crochet while vaguely watching TV or something? I don't watch much TV and if I do I like having a project....

    1. Thank you, I found that I did have to keep counting in order to not mess it up. I was able to watch some tv at the same time though :)

  8. After searching through many Ravelry patterns I decided to settle on your pattern it is gorgeous, lively and will brighten up any room love your colours. However I will be using only 4 colours mines won't be bright I will be coping your layout for the most part. You did a fantastic job yours is beautiful considering you said you used a lot of scrap yarn. Thank you for sharing.

  9. Gorgeous! I found this linked on AllFreeCrochet and I think it's going to be my next ripple project - I absolutely love the way you've written the pattern because it's all on one page I can print out and put on the magnetic board I use to follow patterns. Thank-you:)

  10. This is absolutely stunning. I love the colors you used. My grandmother had made a single crochet ripple for my parents, and I love it. I wanted to find a nice pattern to make my own....currently I am making one from dbl crochet...the neat ripple by Lucy of Attic24, black and cream and it is so pretty...still have a way to go with it. I have tons of yarn to make this, thanks for sharing your beautiful work. Sandy

  11. Would it still work using the same count but DC instead of SC like the patter on this site for the chevron scarf? I ask because I'm in a DC pattern right now and keep catching myself doing the DC like the scarf ha ha.

    1. Carrie- I think this should work with DC, just make sure to ch 2 at the beginning of each row instead of ch 1.

  12. Would it be possible to have a chart
    Of at least the first five rows

    1. I haven't gotten into charts- I read written patterns so much better. good luck.

  13. Do you think this pattern would work with Bulky weight yarn (5) ?

    1. I haven't tried bulky yarn, but why not? It may make the chevrons more rounded, but other than that I think it will work. good luck!

  18. Is there any way to estimate how much yarn is needed? I won't be using leftover yarn, I will be purchasing a couple of different colors.

  19. Just joined a crochet circle for beginners at the local library and am going to try this as my first project. I'm hoping this comes out good enough to use as a gift for a dear friend. Thanks for sharing the pattern! :)
