HOW TO CROCHET A CHEVRON BABY AFGHAN BLANKET - TUTORIAL - DIY

crochet hook:  I used a 5:00 mm
yarn: your choice
yarn needle
scissors

ABBREVIATIONS:

dc - double crochet
sc - single crochet
sl st - slip stitch
st or sts - stitch, or stitches
dc3tog - make 1 dc in each of 3 sts, holding loop on hook, you should have 4 loops on hook after working half of each double crochet, yarn and pull through all 4 loops. Watch video for guidance

This Chevron stitch is worked in multiples of 12, plus 4

Chain 3 counts as a double crochet in this pattern.


Measurement: 36" x 30"

CHANGE COLOR EVERY 3 Rows

Start with a chain of 120 plus 4 


Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in the next 4 sets, dc3tog (see notes above), (this creates the bottom point): 1 dc in each of the next 4 sts, 3 dc in the next st (this creates the upper point) 1 dc in each of the next 4 sts, dc3tog, repeat from ending with 2 dc in last st. Ch 3 turn



Row 2: dc in same stitch as ch 3, dc in next 4 sts, dc3tog, 1 dc in next 4 sts, 3 dc in the 3rd of the 3dc group of previous row, 1 dc in each of next 4 sts,  repeat ending with 2 dc in last st, ch 3 turn.

Rows 3 - 50: Repeat Row 2. Make your blanket as long as you require.   Don't break the yarn.


Edging: 
 
continue working  sc evenly in each dc post along  both sides where you join the colour yarns, making sure you crochet over those loose ends.  I left the wavey sides as is without sc.  I liked that look.
