When I first started figuring out how to crochet, I was in a textiles class at Carlow sort of faking my way through various projects without actually figuring out what I was doing. After college, I decided to sit and watch 8 million you tube videos to learn the specifics of crochet and how to properly do the basic stitches necessary in so many projects I had pinned to my favorite “Crochet Projects To Try” inspiration board on pinterest. This pattern was born from my love of chevron, coupled with many, many other tutorials and “patterns” that for various reasons weren’t working for me. Some of those reasons including requiring stitches that I didn’t know how to do or couldn’t quite understand how to complete.
My pattern uses a simple chain, double crochet, and very simply explained double and triple increase and decrease. I hope you give it a try- the end result is a lovely chevron blanket that is super cute and snuggly as well as functional.
Just look at how thick and chunky this blanket turns out to be:
While I created a baby/crib/lap size blanket, the pattern does explain how to increase or decrease the size based on what you need it for or who you are gifting it to 🙂
Here is the listing link: Large Stripe Crochet Chevron Color Block Blanket Pattern.
I’m giving this blanket away along with some other treasures in an instagram-specific giveaway that starts today and ends next week- find me @sweetersidemom.
And just for fun…the blanket that started it all!
If you make one, I’d love to see and share the finished product! Tag me on instagram (@sweetersidemom) or share it to my Facebook page!

Is this pattern not available on Etsy anymore? The link to your Etsy shop seems to be broken and I can’t find the pattern by searching for it!
Thanks for the heads up Abby – I think I fixed the issue. You should be able to click over now! xo

Could you tell me where I get the patterns for the afghans?
Hi Carol, there is a link in the post to my etsy shop but it is: thesweetersidemom.etsy.com

I am looking for the Chevron afghan pattern that you indicate is on your Etsy site but cannot find it there. Can you please let me know where I might find it?
Hi Carol! The listing must have run out of available downloads this morning- I added more and it’s up again! Thanks, Jacquie

I love the pattern! What size of the needle you used?
Love these colour combos, this pattern looks great! I’ll have to hop over and grab the pattern for sure.

My grandma is trying to make me this for my graduation! I was wondering the steps so I could pass it on to her! Thanks

Beautiful! Do you think it would be possible to follow this pattern using a super bulky weight yarn (something like the Bernat blanket yarn) and the corresponding hook?
Yes definitely! You might just need to adjust the beginning chain and see how the size comes out!
Hello. I purchased your pattern for this blanket and I love it! Just have a few questions.. You wrote that you used “Blue Sky Alpaca worsted weight yarn”, did you purchase the 50% royal alpaca/50% merino, or the cotton? Also, which colors did you use exactly. Not to be a copy cat or anything! I just love the way this blanket you did turned out and want to replicate it so I don’t want to order the wrong yarn.
Waar kan ik een Nederlands patroon vinden voor deze zigzag deken?
I would like to get the pattern for this but it says it is out. I’ve been looking for this everywhere.
A new version will be available soon.

I’d really love the pattern, and every time I click the link it says unavailable. Can someone PLEASE direct me to the pattern!?!?!?
I am updating the pattern and don’t have it for sale currently, so sorry!
Any updates on the pattern?
Sorry it’s on the back burner at the moment.
