I needed a throw to bring my formal living room together. All the furniture in it is gray, except one chair is cream. I thought a gray and cream chevron blanket would tie it together nicely. After searching high and low for one, it occurred to me that I could just make what I wanted. Thus, I went to Hobby Lobby, which has a huge choice of colors, and bought the exact colors I wanted. I couldn’t just create a regular chevron blanket, I wanted to give it a more unique look. Thus, I decided to create chevrons of different sizes for the throw.
– 4 skeins of worsted weight yarn in color A.
– 4 skeins of worsted weight yarn in color B.
– Size J (6.0mm) Crochet Hook
48″ wide x 70″ long
ch = Chain
sp(s) = space(s)
st(s) = stitch(es)
Sl st = Slip Stitch
sk = Skip
sc = Single Crochet
hdc = Half Double Crochet
dc = Double Crochet
dc dec = Double Crochet Decrease
RS = Right Side
WS = Wrong Side
dc3tog – Double Crochet 3 Together: [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] 3 times (4 loops on hook), yarn over, draw through all loops on hook—2 stitches decreased.
To Change Color in Dc: Yarn over and draw up a loop in the last st of the row, yarn over and draw through 2 lps, drop the color in use; with next color to be used, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook. Continue with new color.
Chic Chevron Throw:
With A, ch 199
Row 1 (RS): Working in back bumps only, 2 dc in 4th ch from hook (beginning ch counts as first dc), dc in next 10 ch, [dc3tog] twice, dc in next 10 ch, *3 dc in each of the next 2 ch, dc in next 10 ch, [dc3tog] twice, dc in next 10 ch; repeat from * 5 times, 3 dc in last ch, turn—196 dc.
Rows 2-3: Ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), 2 dc in first dc, dc in next 10 dc, [dc3tog] twice, dc in next 10 dc, *3 dc in each of the next 2 dc, dc in next 10 dc, [dc3tog] twice, dc in next 10 dc; repeat from * 5 times, 3 dc in top of beginning ch; turn. Change to B, turn.
Row 4: Repeat Row 2. Change to A, turn.
Row 5: Repeat Row 2. Change to B, turn.
Row 6-8: Repeat Row 2. Three times. Change to A, turn.
Row 9: Repeat Row 2. Change to B, turn.
Row 10: Repeat Row 2. Change to A, turn.

I need clarification with the starting instructions.
You indicate to crochet 3 double crochets in the next 2 double crochets. How does this work, when starting in the chain and there are no double crochet’s yet?
I’m sorry! That should have been to crochet 3 dc in each of the next 2 ch. Thank you for catching that and asking!
Thanks for such a quick response!
You’re quite welcome! 🙂
Another clarification needed. When ending row 1 with 3 dc and then chaining 3 in the beginning of row 2, it seems like too many stitches and “bumps” out too far on the edge. What am I missing?
Yes, this is correct. The decrease will pull it in more. Sometimes I do a ch 2 as the starting dc because I feel like a ch 3 can be too bulky, but I did a ch 3 for this project. It’ll likely look better with more rows and when you work 3 dc in the top of the ch 3.
Hi, I just need a clarification. When it says [dc3tog] twice, does that mean in the same stitch?
This is worked across a total of 6 stitches, 3 stitches are crocheted together with a dc and then you repeat this again, so that 6 stitches were decreased to 2 sts. It gets evened out with the increase for that row. This creates the chevron zig zag. Hope this helps you!
If I want to change the size, , how can I adjust the number of chains (ex: for some patterns it tells you to chain in multiples of 4 plus 3)? Do you have something like that for this pattern?
Hi, I am not sure if you still need this, but it looks as though it should be 14 + 3 for your multiples. I would chain a few extra passed just in case. At the end, you can just take the extra chains out and weave them in. (:
Love this pattern! Made one for a friend for Christmas and another friend has already placed an order for one of their own. Super easy and fun to do!
I’m so glad you enjoyed the pattern. Thank you for sharing! Your blanket looks beautiful!
I am just starting this pattern and am vet confused with the dc3tog. Is it skip a stich, then dc3tog, another space then dc3tog
What do you do with each colour when you change yarn? Do you cut and weave in, or do you carry the yarn up and hide it with edging after the project is finished?
I cut and weaved in each color change. I wish I could find a better way as I hate weaving in ends. Haha! 🙂
I really want to thank you for this wonderful pattern! It is so easy to follow your instructions and I just love how it looks…
Do you work back if double crochets for second row? Or back post?
This is not worked in the back loop or post when working the double crochets. Only in the back “bump/loop” of your starting chain, so that it gives it a nice edge.
