The Wonders Chevron Crochet Blanket Pattern is fun to crochet and looks so much more complicated than it really is! (My favorite!) It consists of 7 different colors, color blocked in a unique chevron pattern worked in the back loops only.
Crocheting into the back loops of a stitch creates an awesome ridged look and gives projects a great texture. It’s always fun to be a little different! I used my favorite yarn, Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice for this project, but any worsted weight yarn would work!
Since this chevron technique is easy to learn and uses only single crochets for the entire project it is perfect for beginners. I have been slightly obsessed with chevrons lately, so you may be seeing more projects like this on the blog in the future. (Just a warning) Go ahead and read on down for the full, FREE blanket pattern. Happy Crocheting! 🙂
