Crocheted blanket for a boy. This one was done using a Chevron Pattern.

Make a slipknot around the hook with the yarn, leaving a 4-inch tail. Chain 260 to make the foundation chain.

  • Double crochet in the fourth chain from the hook.
  • Make one double crochet in each of the next four chains.
  • Make three double crochets in the next chain. This creates the “mountain peak” of the chevron pattern. The three double crochets together will look like a fan or a seashell.
  • Make one double crochet in each of the next five chains.
  • Skip two chains. This creates the “valley” of the chevron pattern.
  • Make one double crochet in each of the next five chains. You’re crocheting your way out of the valley and up toward a peak.
  • Make three double crochets in the next chain, creating another peak.
  • Make one double crochet in each of the next five chains. You’re crocheting your way down the mountain and into a valley.
  • Repeat Steps 6 through 9 until you reach the end of the foundation chain.
  • Chain three, and turn the project around to start the next row.
  • Skip one stitch, and make one double crochet in the next four stitches. (To skip one stitch, don’t double crochet in the base of your turning chain, and don’t double crochet in the next stitch. Place your first double crochet in the stitch after that.)
  • Make three double crochets in the next stitch, forming a peak.
  • Make one double crochet in each of the next five stitches, working your way down the mountain.
  • Skip the next two stitches, creating a valley.
  • Double crochet in each of the next five stitches, working your way out of the valley.
  • Make three double crochets in the next stitch, forming a peak.
  • Make one double crochet in each of the next five stitches, working your way down the mountain.
  • Repeat Steps 15 through 18 until you reach the end of the row.
  • Repeat Steps 11 through 19 until your blanket reaches the desired length
  • Finish off your blanket when complete, leaving a 4-inch tail. Weave all loose ends into the project with a yarn needle.
