Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern {Rainbow Chevron Blanket}

Crochet Baby Blanket with ripples

Chevron crochet patterns are my favorite baby blankets. They're easy to memorize and can be customized in any colors imaginable. Matching a baby's room or throwing together a funky pattern is just what I love to do when I'm making a gift for a friend. 

Recently, I made this rainbow ripple blanket. I love the way it turned out and wanted to share just how I made it with you! 

- Hobby Lobby "I Love This Yarn!" in Pink and White
- Vanna's Choice in Bluebell (this is Vanna's Choice Baby) and Lime
- Impeccable Loops and Threads in Butterscotch and Cherry.
- I crochet hook
- Scissors
- Tapestry Needle for weaving ends

Pattern Notes:
- Finished blanket is approximately 27" wide and 30" long. 
- This pattern is worked through both loops
- You will be working into the chain at the end of each row
- Gauge is not important for this project
- dc2tog is the same thing as a double crochet decrease

Ch 100.
Row 1: Dc in the third chain from the hook. Dc in the next 4 stitches. Dc2tog twice (so across the next 4 stitches). Dc in the next 4 stitches. *Work 2 dc into the next 2 stitches. Dc in the next 4 stitches. Dc2tog twice. Dc in the next 4 stitches.* End with two dc in the last chain. Ch 2, turn. 
Row 2: (wording has been changed for clarity, but the pattern is the exact same) dc in the first st (your ch 2 and your first dc are worked in the same stitch) and in the next 4 stitches. dc2tog twice. dc in the next 4 stitches. *work 2 dc into the next 2 stitches. dc in the next 4 stitches. dc2tog twice. dc in the next 4 stitches.* End with 2 dc in the last stitch. Ch 2, turn. 

At the end of every two rows, you will cut your yarn and join a new color yarn. You will continue repeating row two until you have 56 rows (or really, you could keep going as long as you wanted).

I'm a fan of the chevron pattern as well! Your color choices are lovely.

This is such a beautiful pattern! I'm working on it right now and I'm a tiny bit confused though. I am wondering if the first * should go back a sentence or if there needs to be something that says to DC in the next four stitches before you repeat. I'm fairly new to crocheting, so I could be completely up in the night. But it seems like there needs to be 4 DCs between the peak and valley (and the valley and peak) Thanks so much for your help!

Again, a beautiful work of art. I always love your color choices and the cheerfulness that shines through your designs. :)

Help! I'm making this blanket but with every row I make, my dc2tog and 2 stitches with 2 doubles keeps moving over a stitch with each row I make. I've started over 3 times and have counted my stitches over and over. I'm wanting to make this for this Saturday.

Denise, are you putting your first stitch on row 2 into the same stitch as the chain you just made? If you're going into the next one instead that will have the effect that you're getting x

Learning to patterns too, and I have a question on Row 1 you have in parenthesis (so across the next 4 stitches). does that mean Dc2tog twice only or do I dc2tog in the next four stitches, thank you, I am really confused, reading patterns are hard for me.

Cher Seck said...

I am totally confused with the 1st row ... you have Dc in the third chain from the hook, Dc in the next 4 st. Dc 2tog twice (so across the next 4 stitches) Dc in the next four sts. ....

Plz help me ...

When i start the 2nd color do I do DC in third chain from hook or start w DC in first stitch then 4 DC?
