Soft Crochet Chevron Blanket Pattern

Soft Crochet Chevron Blanket

By ‘soft’ I mean that the chevrons are soft, not sharp like you see in other patterns. They are much like a ripple.

For a smaller or larger Soft Crochet Chevron Blanket use a multiple of 12 + 3 to create your foundation chain.

For example: To make my blanket I am using 6 multiples of 12 + 3 (the extra 3 is for the turning chain.)

12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 3 = 75 chain stitches to start my blanket.

12 stitches will create one chevron (the ‘V’ shape) as you start working stitches into the foundation chain.

The size of the blanket I have made was a small one for demonstration purposes.

Using your first color:

Row 1: 1 dc into 4th ch from hk, * 1 dc into each of the next 3 ch sts, dc2tog (twice), 1 dc into each of the next 3 ch sts, 2 dc into each of the next 2 ch sts, rep from * until 11 sts remain, take out the stitch marker, 1 dc into each of the next 3 ch sts, dc2tog (twice), 1 dc into each of the next 3 ch sts, 2 dc into the last ch st, turn.

Place a stitch marker in the 11th dc st at the other end of your work, count ch-3 as your 1st st.

Row 2: ch 3, 1 dc into the same sp as ch-3, * 1 dc into each of the next 3 dc sts, dc2tog (twice), 1 dc into each of the next 3 dc sts, 2 dc into each of the next 2 dc sts, rep from * until 11 dc sts remain, take out stitch marker, 1 dc into each of the next 3 dc sts, dc2tog (twice), 1 dc into each of the next 3 dc sts, 2 dc into the top of the ch-3, turn.

Rows 3 – 4: Rep Row 2.

Finish off. Once you have finished off, turn your work and join 2nd color in by making a sl st into 1st dc. Work over yarn tails as you work on the next row.

Rows 5 – 8: Rep Row 2.

Finish off. Once you have finished off, turn your work and join 2nd color in by making a sl st into 1st dc. Work over yarn tails as you work on the next row.

For all following rows continue on with the above instructions to get the length you desire then ending with the same color yarn that you started with.

Weave yarn tails in with a yarn needle.

  1. Nikki says:

    Thank you Paula! I really like this design. I have to say that it is definitely the easiest chevron pattern I’ve come across. I would like to use it with soft yarn for a baby blanket, and I’m wondering if this can be done in single crochets?

    • Paula says:

      Thanks Nikki! You can try doing it in single crochets and just keep in mind that the amount of stitches for the turning chain are different.

      • Nikki says:

        Thanks for the response Paula. I have a baby blanket in the making and it’s turning out great!

  2. Natalie says:

    Hi Paula! I’m working on making a blanket just like this but sized for an adult, how many chain stitches should I start with?

    • Paula says:

      Hi Natalie, Make a foundation chain to the size you want your blanket and making sure you have the multiples correct and then that will be the amount of chain stitches you need for your adult blanket.

  3. Christina says:

    Hi. i am VERY new to crocheting so i have a very stupid question i’m sure. if i were to make this blanket bigger than the pattern you have listed, would i keep that 11th marking the same or would that change too?

    Thank you very much for this!:)

    • Paula says:

      Hello Christina, That’s a great question. Yes, you would keep the stitch marker in the 11th st no matter what size you make.

  4. Cathy Voshell says:

    I stumbled across your You Tube video for the soft chevron blanket and wanted to let you know it was very helpful to me! I am re-learning how to crochet. My grandmother taught me a sharp chevron pattern many, many years ago that started with 310 chains but I couldn’t remember anything else. I like this soft chevron much better and am working on it now. I like that you work at a slow pace throughout the video so it’s easy to follow along.

    • Paula says:

      I’m so thrilled that this was a huge help to you!

  5. Diana says:

    Can I get a link to the video tutorial for the soft chevron please. The main site said there was one but I must have missed it.

  6. Sharon says:

    I am at the site that was suggested so I could print this afghan. I don’t see a place to print this pattern anyplace. How can I print this pattern? I tried to even do a copy but that didn’t work either.
    Thanks for any help or suggestions.

    • Paula says:

      There is a Print button at the bottom of the pattern page.

  7. kATHY says:

    Your instructions are so easy to understand. Started my blanket tonight.

  8. Brittany says:


    My coworker found this pattern and fell in love. I am always doing something with yarn so she asked if I could make it. I would like to compliment you on how easy this pattern is to follow. It is definitely one of my favorites so far and I will definitely keep this in mind for future use.

    Thanks for all that you do and for your wonderfully creative mind.

  9. Cynthia says:

    Hi Paula,
    I simply adore crocheting this blanket! My daughter is a pediatric nurse and I have made three (so far) for her patients. She is now pregnant and has requested that I get started on one for future baby that will be arriving next month. I really enjoy your tutorials on YouTube. You are an excellent teacher. Thank you.

  10. Kate says:

    Thank you so much for this wonderful pattern and tutorial! It was so easy to follow your instructions. I made one (43 x 47 inches) for my preschooler’s nap time. I posted pictures of the finished project on my blog.

  11. Jennifer says:

    I have made afghans for everyone I know and have not yet made one for myself. I just started this tonight and found your directions easy to follow. Thank you for sharing. 😃

  12. Ann says:

    I just found this because my pregnant step daughter had her heart set on a chevron or ripple blanket. Thank you so much for this and especially for the ability to print your work! Very nice pattern and very professional site!

  13. Diane says:

    Love this pattern On my second one. Your instructions were fantastic. Thanks so much for sharing your talent.
