This single crochet chevron blanket is easy to learn and is great for any crocheter looking to try something a little different. For this single crochet blanket we will be crocheting in just the back loop of each stitch which will create an awesome ridged texture. If you ready to learn how to do make a chevron blanket using just single crochets, then read on down for the full, FREE pattern!
For my chevron blanket tutorial I used the Impeccable Yarn brand from Michaels but a good substitute would be Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn. Vanna’s choice also happens to be my favorite acrylic yarn to use for all of my blankets! This yarn holds up well to my kids daily antics and washes beautifully!
You will need to use a starting chain in a multiple of 17 to start, then chain an additional 15 to whatever length starting chain you picked to start your blanket. It is the perfect blanket to customize to just the size you need!
I recommend for a beginner crocheter to try this chevron blanket because of the easy single crochet stitches that are used throughout. It really is a great beginner project! I added a bit of texture to it by crocheting only in the back loop of every stitch which creates an awesome ridge like texture and gives the blanket a bit more character.
