Easy chevron crochet pattern baby blanket
I think you’ll love how easy this blanket is to work up. It is made with a simple stitch repeat consisting of only single crochets (one of my favorite stitches!)
I tend to use single crochets a lot in my patterns like these easy crochet baby blanket patterns. Believe me, if you can do a single crochet, then you are good to go for this project!
The Yarn that is perfect for this crocheted blanket
In my opinion the newest yarn from Lion Brand, Feels like Butta is the ideal yarn for a baby crochet blanket! It is amazingly soft and is machine washable / dryable which is a must have for a blanket that will be used constantly. It is a 100% polyester yarn and comes in over 30 different colors so that you’ll always be able to find the perfect color.
Use 3 colors or only 1 for this chevon blanket!
I know I used 3 colors for my blanket but if you prefer you can use only 1 color of Feels Like Butta and have way less ends to weave in. Lion Brand also sells bonus bundles of this yarn so you can get even bigger skeins to use. The regular skeins are 100 grams vs the bonus bundles that have 275 grams. This whole blanket only takes 269 grams so you could actually get way with using one bonus bundle of this yarn as long as gauge is followed correctly!
Take a look at the yarn colors I picked!
If you’d like to take a look at the yarn colors I used I linked the yarn up below (affiliate links). Go ahead and check out each one to find the color that’s just for you. I’ll explain a bit more about them a little further down but I couldn’t wait to show you the actual colors!
Feels Like Butta – Ice Blue
Feels Like Butta – Pale Grey
Feels Like Butta – White
Neutral colors are perfect for this crochet blanket!
For this blanket I decided to go with soft neutral colors. I opted for Ice Blue, Pale Grey & White because I loved how muted they were! Feel free to pick any colors because I am pretty positive any color from this line would look AMAZING!

How to Change Sizes
Change sizes by using a multiple of 21 + 20. So that means that you will need to use a starting chain in a multiple of 21. For example… 21,42,63,84,105,126,147,168,189,210,231,252,273 etc. then add 20 chains to that total.

Border of the Blanket
Do not fasten off yarn at the end of your project.
Join in the white yarn, turn your work and crochet sc’s evenly across the entire last row. At the end of the row work 3 sc’s into the last st to make a corner, continue sc down the entire side of the blanket evenly into the side of each row.
At every corner do 3 sc’s and continue this pattern along the entire outside of the blanket. You can do 2 rounds of a single crochet border or just one. Either way would look nice!
After you are done with the border use a yarn needle to weave in all the ends of the blanket.
Blocking your Blanket
The chevron stitch does tend to take on a wave like appearance so I’d recommend blocking your finished blanket. You can use the blocking techniques I talked about in my post “how to block crochet” to help you with this part.
You are done with your chevron blanket for Baby!
See how easy it was? I really love how this chevron stitch worked up with the higher peaks which is exactly what I was hoping for. I designed something similar with my “Neutral Chevron Blanket” which is also a chevron but with smaller peaks! If you love chevron patterns I’d suggest definitely checking that blanket out too.
