This easy chevron crochet blanket pattern is a must-have!
The main reason I LOVE this blanket is that it is made with a simple beginner friendly stitch.… the single crochet! The single crochet stitch is a basic stitch that is super easy to master which makes learning a chevron stitch like this as easy as pie!
Since this single stitch crochet chevron pattern is so easy to learn it is excellent for a new (or veteran) crocheter looking to try something a little different. You will love it, promise!
The simple stitch (not to mention single crochet!!) repeat is one that I promise you can master in no time at all! It is designed almost like my other pattern the Crochet Chevron Neutral Blanket Pattern, which is another excellent and easy to learn chevron pattern if you are in the mood to make more!
The Yarn that’s perfect for this single crochet chevron!
For my chevron blanket, 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. I would also suggest Caron Simply Soft, which is a beautiful yarn with fantastic drape! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with either.
This crochet ripple afghan is worked up in the back loop
For this single crochet blanket we will be crocheting in just the back loop of each stitch which will create an awesome ridged texture. The back loop is easy to find on a stitch. If you are looking at a stitch from the top and see the two loops you will want to work into the one furthest away from you (AKA the back loop!).
How to change the size of a chevron blanket
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!
Chevron Blanket is Great for Beginners
I recommend for beginner crocheters to give his chevron blanket pattern a try (and these blankets too!) because of the simple single crochet stitches that are throughout. It 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 impressive ridge like texture and gives the blanket a bit more character.
