Crochet Chevron Baby Blanket

I so love crocheting blankets for new little babies. It’s so fun to pick out the pattern and colors I’m going to use each time. This one is for a sweet little boy that will be here soon. 

I fell in love with this pattern by Leelee Knits as soon as I saw it. I love the soft waves of the chevron pattern – so different from the normal chevron pattern. I followed the pattern to get started, but changed the stripe sequence and added more rows to make it more of a square. My finished blanket ended up to be about 36 by 39 inches.

I used Caron Simply Soft yarn in Grey Heather, Soft Blue, and White with an H hook. I started with the blue and crocheted 9 rows. Then I continued with 9 rows of each color. The color order I used was blue, white, grey, blue, grey, white, blue for a total of 63 rows. Then I crocheted a border of 3 rows of single crochet in grey.

I love the way this turned out! It’s big enough to cover a car seat or to lay on the floor for tummy time. I hope the new mommy likes it, too. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by,

Anita

    I love your blanket. I was wondering how many starting chains did you use? Was the finished blanket larger than the pattern because you used the Simply Soft yarn? Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Lynn, thank you so much! I followed the pattern by chaining 139 to start and I did use an H/5mm hook. My blanket ended up measuring about 36 by 39 inches including the border I added. I crocheted a total of 63 rows before adding the border. The pattern had a total of 48 rows. So I think the difference in size is because I added 15 rows and then the 3 rows of single crochet for the border. I don’t think the Simply Soft yarn made too much of a difference in the size. Hope this helps!
