Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern {Rainbow Chevron Blanket}

Crochet Baby Blanket with ripples

Chevron crochet patterns are my favorite baby blankets. They’re easy to memorize and can be customized in any colors imaginable. Matching a baby’s room or throwing together a funky pattern is just what I love to do when I’m making a gift for a friend. 

Recently, I made this rainbow ripple blanket. I love the way it turned out and wanted to share just how I made it with you! 

Materials:
- Hobby Lobby “I Love This Yarn!” in Pink and White
- Vanna’s Choice in Bluebell (this is Vanna’s Choice Baby) and Lime
- Impeccable Loops and Threads in Butterscotch and Cherry.
- I crochet hook
- Scissors
- Tapestry Needle for weaving ends

Pattern Notes:
- Finished blanket is approximately 27″ wide and 30″ long. 
- This pattern is worked through both loops
- You will be working into the chain at the end of each row
- Gauge is not important for this project
- dc2tog is the same thing as a double crochet decrease

Pattern: 
Ch 100.
Row 1: Dc in the third chain from the hook. Dc in the next 4 stitches. Dc2tog twice (so across the next 4 stitches). Dc in the next 4 stitches. *Work 2 dc into the next 2 stitches. Dc in the next 4 stitches. Dc2tog twice. Dc in the next 4 stitches.* End with two dc in the last chain. Ch 2, turn. 
Row 2: (wording has been changed for clarity, but the pattern is the exact same) dc in the first st (your ch 2 and your first dc are worked in the same stitch) and in the next 4 stitches. dc2tog twice. dc in the next 4 stitches. *work 2 dc into the next 2 stitches. dc in the next 4 stitches. dc2tog twice. dc in the next 4 stitches.* End with 2 dc in the last stitch. Ch 2, turn. 

At the end of every two rows, you will cut your yarn and join a new color yarn. You will continue repeating row two until you have 56 rows (or really, you could keep going as long as you wanted).

  1. I love this! The colors are fantastic and the pattern is simple.

  2. It turned out great! The colors are so cheerful.

  3. I&#39;m a fan of the chevron pattern as well! Your color choices are lovely.<br /><br />Sheila<br />http://sheilazachariae.blogspot.com/2014/02/cath-kidstongreengate-inspired-bakeware.html

  4. This is such a beautiful pattern! I&#39;m working on it right now and I&#39;m a tiny bit confused though. I am wondering if the first * should go back a sentence or if there needs to be something that says to DC in the next four stitches before you repeat. I&#39;m fairly new to crocheting, so I could be completely up in the night. But it seems like there needs to be 4 DCs between the peak and

  5. Again, a beautiful work of art. I always love your color choices and the cheerfulness that shines through your designs. :)

  6. Help! I&#39;m making this blanket but with every row I make, my dc2tog and 2 stitches with 2 doubles keeps moving over a stitch with each row I make. I&#39;ve started over 3 times and have counted my stitches over and over. I&#39;m wanting to make this for this Saturday.

  7. Denise, are you putting your first stitch on row 2 into the same stitch as the chain you just made? If you&#39;re going into the next one instead that will have the effect that you&#39;re getting x

  8. Learning to patterns too, and I have a question on Row 1 you have in parenthesis (so across the next 4 stitches). does that mean Dc2tog twice only or do I dc2tog in the next four stitches, thank you, I am really confused, reading patterns are hard for me.

  9. I am totally confused with the 1st row … you have Dc in the third chain from the hook, Dc in the next 4 st. Dc 2tog twice (so across the next 4 stitches) Dc in the next four sts. ….<br /><br />Plz help me …<br />

  10. When i start the 2nd color do I do DC in third chain from hook or start w DC in first stitch then 4 DC?

  11. I am so disappointed…when I print this beautiful pattern the right hand side is covered with advertising so I cannot read the complete pattern.

  12. I&#39;m working this pattern and I&#39;m about four rows in and it seems like the blanket wants to go into a circle

  13. I love the rainbow baby blanket and I&#39;ve begun to crochet it. But I&#39;m stuck on the following direction. You say… (so across the next 4 stitches) …I&#39;m not sure what you mean by that. Can you explain a little further? Thanks so much. Kate

  14. These are very easy, the colors are beautiful, and best of all , can be crocheted in one day.
