CHEVRON CROCHET BLANKET PATTERN
To make the lap size version you will need.
- 5 skeins of Lion Brand Yarn, Vanna’s Choice Yarn. I used (2) dark grey heather, oatmeal, grey marble and barley.
- Size J crochet hook 6.00 MM
- Yarn needle
- ch= chain
- sc= single crochet
- st= stitch
- sc2tog = single crochet two stitches together
- Gauge is 16 st’s for every 4″
- Finished Size is approximately 38” x 24” when using a beginning ch of
101 (I use this size as a throw over the back of chair )
- If you would like to make a sample to practice on ch 17 + 16 st and
follow along with the pattern
- Your sc 3 in one st will always be in the 2nd sc of the sc3 from the
previous row (this will make your hump)
- If you would like to make this blanket smaller or larger start with a beginning chain that is a multiple of 17. For example: 17, 34, 51, 68, 85, 102, 119, 136, 153, 170, 187, 204, 221, 238, 255, 272, 289, 306, 323, and 340 and then add on an additional 16 chains to which ever length you have chosen.
- Written in standard US terms.
FOUNDATION ROW: with your first color of your choice ch 101 or whatever length you have chosen. I started with dark grey heather.
ROW 1: starting in the second chain from hook sc2tog, 1 sc in each of next 5 ch’s, sc 3 times in next ch, *1 sc in the next 7 ch’s, skip next 2 ch, 1 sc in next 7 ch’s, sc 3 times in next ch. Repeat from * across until you are left with 2 ch then sc those last two remaining ch’s together (aka sc2tog), turn. (So you will sc into the last 5 ch’s and sc the last two together!)
ROW 2: ch 1, starting in the 1 st sc2tog, do 1 sc in each of next 5 st, sc 3 times in next st, *1 sc in the next 7 st, skip next 2 st, 1 sc in next 7 st, sc 3 times in next st. Repeat from * across until you are left with 2 st then sc those last two remaining stitches together (aka sc2tog), turn. (So you will sc into the last 5 st’s and sc the last two together!)
ROW 3 – 19: repeat row 2.
ROW 20: change colors (I used oatmeal), repeat row 2
ROW 21- 39: repeat row 2
ROW 40: change colors (I used barley), repeat row 2
ROW 41-59: repeat row 2.
ROW 60: change colors (I used grey marble), repeat row 2.
ROW 61-79: repeat row 2.
ROW 80: change colors (I used dark grey heather), repeat row 2.
ROW 81-99: repeat Row 2 for the rest of the blanket.
Fasten off yarn and weave in loose ends throughout the blanket with a yarn needle.
Blocking your new Blanket
You may need to block your blanket to get it to lay flat. I suggest wet blocking with this yarn because it is acrylic.
Wet Blocking: Wash or submerge your item completely in water. Roll out and towel dry. Pin down to a blocking board or lay flat on a towel. Let the item air day.
Steam Blocking: Lay the item down on a flat surface. Cover your item with a wet towel. Using an iron or steamer slowly press against the wet washcloth to create steam. Shape your item as your go. Let dry. This method is recommend for natural yarn products versus acrylic yarn.
Spray Blocking: Lay item flat on a towel or blocking board. Spray with a water bottle while shaping as you go. You may pin to a blocking board if you’d like. Let dry.
YOU ARE DONE!
