Easy Chevron Puff Stitch Crochet Blanket Pattern

Free Chevron Puff Stitch Crochet Blanket Pattern – Dotted Ripple

I am so excited to be bringing you this chevron puff stitch crochet blanket. I designed this one a little while ago and have now revamped the pattern.

This is a super soft crochet blanket that uses merino DK wool. However, the yarn has now been discontinued.

You can find lots of suitable alternatives to swap this yarn for. On the other hand, you can totally use any yarn you have in your stash. Even change the yarn weight.

If you do so, please remember the tension will be different as well as the finished size of your blanket.

The pattern uses double crochet chevron pattern throughout the blanket. It is an easy chevron pattern that you can easily memorise.

The contrasting stripes use puff stitch as well. This gives the blanket a lovely textured look and a pop of colour.

It is so fun to work up, is an effortless project, and looks fantastic as a blanket.

How do you crochet a Chevron blanket pattern?

Crochet chevron resembles the look and shape of the classic pointed chevron. It has V shaped points that point to both sides of the blanket.

It can sometimes be referred to as a ripple blanket. Whereas this is not “wrong”, there are some differences. Ripple blankets have a softer wave like shapes within the rows.

The points are simply created by working two or three stitches in the same stitch. This creates a softer peak or wave like pattern.

Classic chevron has sharp defined points. These are created by increase through chain space using two or three chains. This allows for the increase to create a sharp almost right angle turn.

So, to crochet a chevron blanket you will need to alternate sections of increase and decrease sections of a pattern.

The increase or “the top of the peak” is created with extra stitches worked into a 2 chain space.

The decreases or the “bottom of the peak” happens when you crochet two or three stitches together depending on the pattern.

How many chains do you need for a Chevron blanket?

This greatly depends on the pattern you are following as they differ.

As a rule of a thumb, the more stitches you have in your repeat, the wider your chevron will be.

On the opposite, if you use less stitches for your chevron, it will be narrow and pointy.

For this particular crochet blanket pattern, the chevron is created over 12 stitches.

This is useful to know if you would like to make your blanket wider. So, for a custom sized blanket you will need multiples of 12 + 3 chains.


How do you edge a chevron crochet blanket?

I personally think the edge of the chevron blanket is super pretty. I really do not think you need to edge a chevron crochet blanket with additional border.

The whole point of crocheting a chevron pattern is to show off those peaks!

If you need to get a straight edge on your blanket for practical or functional reasons, check out THIS TUTORIAL.

However, you can add some fun elements to your blanket. I have used colourful tassel to finish off my blanket.

You can attach a fun Pom Pom to each peak of the chevron too.

And a nicely trimmed fringe would finish off the throw perfectly too.
