Free Traditional Chevron Crochet Pattern

A true heirloom that can be handed down through the generations, the traditional chevron blanket has always been a staple in the crochet world. For decades the chevron has been a well loved stitch pattern, and for good reason.

It’s okay (and, in my opinion, often desirable) to have what some would call an “ugly” chevron blanket. I know some of the blankets my ancestors made were downright hideous. But that adds to the charm, speaks to the practicality of their generation, and the overall effect when you’re cuddled up beneath it on a chilly day.

Feel free to grab random skeins of worsted weight acrylic from your yarn stash and combine them to create a squishy, possibly hideous, lovely crocheted blanket.

Why crochet a traditional chevron blanket?

The traditional chevon is easy to learn and easy to crochet. Great for beginners!

A chevron blanket pattern is an excellent first blanket for a new crocheter. All you need to know is how to make the single crochet.

Use as many colors as you like. You could use just one color to create a solid chevron, however, many people make theirs using at least two colors. The contrast of the two colors next to each other exaggerates the ups and downs of the chevron pattern.

A great chance to use up scrap yarn! There’s something about a chevron that allows you to combine colors that may not normally go together.

Best yarn to use for a crochet Chevron Blanket?

The best yarn to use for a chevron blanket pattern is a worsted weight (size 4) 100% acrylic yarn. This works great for this type of pattern and is nice and durable as it stands up to repeated washing.

Pictured here is Big Twist Value from Joann. Other great yarn options include Brava Worsted (the huge Brava 500 skeins would work nicely), Vanna’s Choice, Mary Maxim Value yarn, Red Heart, or your favorite worsted weight acrylic.
