I’m very excited to offer this new free crochet pattern on the Daisy Cottage Designs blog. Whether you’re new to the blog, or you’ve been around since my first patterns, thank you for stopping by. Today I have a beautiful chevron blanket crochet pattern for you. It’s a classic look that many people love.

As I know I’ve mentioned before, one of my favorite parts of crocheting is selecting the colors for a project. One of my goals has been to branch out of my comfort zone with color choices. Another has been to use up my yarn stash (though this is tough since I just keep purchasing yarn).

Can’t make this blanket right now? Pin it for later.

This blanket is definitely outside my norm in the color department. I tend to use bright and bold colors, for the most part. I went much more pastel this time.I used Paint Box Yarn’s Simply Aran for this chevron crochet blanket. I used 4 shades – Pistachio Green, Champagne White, Dusty Rose, and Seafoam Blue. I used one skein of each with the exception of the Pistachio Green – it took about 2 skeins of that particular shade – including the optional border.

Paintbox Yarns are some of my favorite to work with. I love the color selection and the feel of the yarn. You also can’t go wrong with the price. Paintbox yarns doesn’t know anything about me – so I’m not doing this because they’re paying me or giving me yarn – I just really love their product.

If you’d like to make a chevron crochet blanket exactly like mine, keep reading! The free crochet pattern is below. My blanket measures 27.5” x 30.5”, but I’ve given instructions to make this blanket any size you wish. Just scroll to the end of the pattern for those instructions.

Optional Border:

I worked a border around my blanket to give my blanket a straight edge. To do this, you need to fill the chevron with different height stitches. I didn’t write out a pattern for this per-se, but this post from LittleTin Bird will give you a good start. The image above shows you what stitches I chose to use.

To Adjust the Size of this blanket:

To get started, calculate the size you want your finished blanket to be. Each chevron (up and down) is approximately 4 inches – this will depend on how tightly you crochet and what size hook you use.

Your starting chain needs to be in multiples of 15 + 16.

So let’s say you want your blanket to be approximately 60 inches. You’ll need to have about 15 up and downs to make your blanket the correct width.

So you’d do the following math:

15 x 15 = 225

225+16 = 241

If you want your blanket to be approximately 100 inches wide, you’ll need to have about 25 ups and downs.

So you’d do the following math:

15 x 25 = 375

375 + 15 = 390

After you calculate your starting chain length, you’ll follow the pattern exactly.
