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!
– 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
– Tapestry Needle for weaving ends
– 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
NOTE: If your rows aren’t lining up OR if you’re running out of room at the end of Row 2, please check out this brief video tutorial to answer your questions.
Ripple Crochet Pattern:
Row 1: dc in the third chain from the hook. Dc in the next 4 stitches. Dc2tog, dc 2 tog. Dc in the next 4 stitches. *Work 2 dc into the next 2 stitches. Dc in the next 4 stitches. Dc2tog, dc2tog. Dc in the next 4 stitches.* End with 2 dc in the last chain. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2: 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, dc2tog. Dc in the next 4 stitches. *Work 2 dc into the next 2 stitches. dc in the next 4 stitches. dc2tog, dc2tog. dc in the next 4 stitches.* End with 2 dc in the last stitch. Ch 2, turn.
NOTE: you will have 2 dc in the first and last stitch of each row (ch 2 counts as dc).
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).
I did a repeating stripe pattern for this blanket. It’s two rows of each color in the following order:
