Chevron in crochet is a technique that uses a stitch, or a combination of stitches, to create a “V” and an inverted “V” pattern. Believe it or not, they look sophisticated, but they are so easy for beginners. I’ve curated a list with 15 unique chevron crochet blanket patterns that you will love to make.
Often, in the crochet community, you will hear designers refer to a chevron pattern as “peaks (points) and valleys (dips)”. And the reason is because it is a term to make it easier for crocheters to understand that peaks are increases and valleys are decreases that create a chevron pattern.
Before we dive into the list, let’s go through some useful information that may be helpful for you to understand more about this technique.

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 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. And you can create unique patterns, such as the dragonfly one listed below.
- 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: yet another way to create textures with a simple stitch. This one will look great with color changes.
- Granny stitch: this classic stitch will look great in a vintage style blanket. Depending on your color choices, it will also make a beautiful farmhouse throw blanket.
- Bobble and puff stitches: these are both very common stitches used along with the other simpler stitches. It is 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, and most common ones for them, 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.
