To learn how to make crochet baby blankets
I just finished making this beautiful gray, blue, and white chevron blanket for our future little bundle of joy, and I love it so much that I thought I’d give you all the pattern so that you can make one as well!
The size of this blanket is very easy to adjust, so whether you want a baby blanket or a full size adult afghan, the possibilities are endless!
I used three different colors, but you can use just one solid color if you want, or several different colors!
So without further ado, here is the pattern for this chevron blanket.
Use a 5mm hook with worsted weight (medium) yarn.
Ch – chain
dc – double crochet
dc3tog – double crochet 3 together
st – stitch
**NOTE: At the end of each row you will dc 3 times in the turning chain (last chain on the first row) instead of doing the 3 dcs twice.**
Chain a multiple of 14 stitches + 2 stitches (I did 142 stitches to make it baby sized).
Row 1: (I started with blue) 2 dcs in 3rd ch from hook, *dc in each of the next 3 stitches, dc3tog 2 times, dc in each of the next 3 stitches, (3 dcs in next st) 2 times*; repeat from * to * across, ending with 3 dcs in last ch.
Row 2: Turn. Ch 2. 2 dcs in first dc, *dc in each of the next 3 stitches, dc3tog 2 times, dc in each of the next 3 stitches, (3 dcs in next st) 2 times*; repeat from * to * across, ending with 3 dcs in turning ch.
Repeat row 2 until blanket is to desired length.
I added a white border around my blanket using the same pattern from row 2 along the top and bottom, and a row of dcs along each side (in the end of the rows).
To get the color pattern, I crocheted 3 rows of blue, one row of white, 3 rows of gray, one row of white, and so on.
Update: Some people were having problems with the pattern, so here’s a picture of the pattern. This should answer a lot of questions.
Very fun and useful model. I hope you will like it. Good luck
