Chevron crochet blanket patterns

Often, in the crochet community, you will hear designers refer to a chevron crochet blanket pattern as “peaks (points) and valleys (dips)”.

The reason why this is a common term is because it is easier for crocheters to understand that peaks are increases and valleys are decreases that create a chevron pattern.

Is crochet ripple stitch the same as chevron?

Some similar patterns to chevron are referred to as “ripples”. They are basically the same and are usually created in a similar way, but ripples are wavier in shape. 

Meaning that the pattern creates a rounded shape for the “peaks and valleys”. While in the chevron, the “peaks and valleys” are more of a sharp/zigzag pattern.

Best stitches for a chevron crochet blanket

The great thing about chevron in crochet is that you can use one (or multiple) stitches in a pattern to create textures.

Here are a few of the most common stitches used in chevron blankets:

  • Chains and double crochet stitches: this is the most common and easier way to make a chevron blanket.
  • Chains and single crochet: with this combination, you can work in back or front loops and create fancy blankets with beautiful, ridged textures.
  • Chains and half double crochet: this combination will look great with color changes.
  • Granny stitch: a classic stitch that will look great in a vintage or a farmhouse style blanket.
  • Bobble and puff stitches: a great way to add amazing textures to chevron blankets.

Best yarns for Chevron Crochet Blankets

You can make chevron blankets with any kind of yarn. But the best yarns are the self-striping or variegated worsted weight (#4) yarns. 

The reason why those type of yarns are the best is because of the “V” nature of the chevrons and ripples, it gives it an amazing waving or zigzag look.

And another advantage of self-striping yarns is that they do the color changes for you. So there is no hassle with weaving in a lot of ends.
