This is a simple version of a chevron stripe crochet blanket. Simply made with double and single crochet stitches.
Use whatever colours you would like and suit you.
You will need:
1 Size 4 Crochet Hook
Scraps of yarn – either one main and contrast or lots of colours
(If you would like to make a larger blanket just adjust the foundation chain to set up size)
DC – Double Crochet
SC – Single Crochet
CH – Chain
Foundation Row: Chain 66 (Each repeat of the pattern is 23 chains)
Set up Row: SC in 2nd chain, then in next 10 ch. *2 x SC in next stitch, SC next 10 stitches, skip 1 SC in next ch, SC next 10 stitches* repeat * to * until 11 CH left, SC in next 9 CH, Skip 1, SC, CH 2 turn
1st Row: DC in 2nd stitch, DC in next 8 stitches, * 2 x DC in next stitch, DC next 10 stitches, skip 1, DC next 10 stitches * repeat * to * until last 10, DC x 9 skip 1, DC, CH 2
2nd Row: SC in 2nd stitch, then in next 9 ch. *2 x SC in next stitch, SC next 10 stitches, skip 1 SC in next ch, SC next 10 stitches* repeat * to * until 10 CH left, SC in next 9 CH, Skip 1, SC, CH 2 turn
Repeat last 2 rows as pattern.
I did 4 repeats (8 rows) in green, then 1 repeat (2 rows) in white.
Repeat in this manner until you have your desired size. I did 50 rows for a dolls blanket.
Using contrast pick up and SC along entire long side, complete two row. Repeat on other long side.
You are all finished and have a gorgeous dolls blanket! As I said you can make this larger just add more in multiples of 23 to the foundation row, and keep repeating rows more times.
Weave in ends, and then block.
As always I would love to see if you give this a go!
