Crochet chevron baby blanket- free pattern

Hello my crocheters, for my second baby blanket I choose the chevron stitch. I love this pattern and I think it’s perfect for a blanket.

Of course my model for this post was my cat, he just loves everything I crochet and he enjoys sleeping on my crocheted or knitting items.

The dimension of the blanket is 91 cm length X 91 cm width (36 inches X 36 inches). I used cotton from my stash, (I bought a large quantity of cotton a few years ago and I’ve lost the label of it and unfortunately I don’t know the brand)  and a 2 mm hook, the pattern is very easy, perfect even if you are a beginner.

I love the color (a beautiful mustard, unfortunately the light wasn’t to good and I didn’t succeed to capture the true shade of the color) and I think is perfect for both sex: girl or boy, but you can choose any color you love for your blanket. You can use this pattern to crochet any kind of blanket, not just a baby blanket, you can crochet a lapghan or a throw blanket just for you or for someone you love, you just have to work until you reach the size you need.

The blanket sizing:

Baby blanket: 91 cm x 91 cm / 36″x 36″;

Toddler blanket: 107 cm x 132 cm / 42″x 52″;

Lapghan: 91 cm x 122 cm / 36″x 48″;

Throw blanket: 132 cm x 152 cm / 52″x 60″;

Twin bed: 150 cm x 216 cm / 59″x 85″;

Full/ queen: 229 cm x 229 cm/ 90″x 90″;

King: 274 cm x 229 cm/ 108″x 90″.

You will need:

300 g cotton (use your favorite brand);

2 mm hook (or what hook size is indicated on the label);

Scissors.

Abbreviations:

ch= chain;

sc= single crochet;

dc= double crochet;

Pattern Instructions:

For this pattern you have to make multiple of 12 chain.

 

Row 1: 3ch, 5dc, *skip 2 ch, 5dc, 2ch, 5dc*, repeat *-* in the last ch make 2 dc ;

Row 2: 3ch, 5dc starting with the 1st dc of the previous row, skip 2 dc of previous row, 5dc (the 5th dc in space of 2ch of the previous row), *2ch, 5dc (the 1st dc in space of 2ch of the previous row), skip 2 dc of previous row, 5dc starting with the 2nd dc from the hook of the previous row*, repeat *-*, in the last dc of previous row make 2dc;

Repeat from row 2 until you reach the desired length.

Make an edge working 2 rounds of sc.

You can wash it by hand or in a washing machine at 30 degrees and iron it (only if you use cotton yarn) or block it.

I hope you will enjoy making this pattern like I did, and as you can see my cat enjoys the blanket very much, I think he will have a new crochet blanket.

  1. I’m new to crochet. If I want to make a baby size blanket, how many chains do I start with? You example only shows 24 chAins. Thank you

    1. Depends on what yarn you use. The simple way to find out how many chains you need is to make a sample with your yarn and measure how many chains you have in 10 cm and then multiply that number with 9, in that way you will have the chains for 90 cm blanket. But don’t forget to approximate the number of chains you have with multiple of the pattern (for example if your calculation give you 140 chains you will need to work 144 chains, because you need to have a multiple of 12). If you don’t understand my method you can send my a message with the number of chains in 10 cm and I’ll make the calculations for you.

  2. Appreciating the time and energy you put into your blog and detailed information you present. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed information. Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
