Chevron Blanket Free Crochet Pattern – Jabble Baby Blanket

I originally designed this chevron blanket as a baby blanket because I was itching to make something with this vibrant color combo (I share more about that story in the video tutorial)! But the beautiful thing about a chevron blanket is that it is highly versatile. Add a chevron or two and several more rows and you’re able to adjust the size just as you see fit – and I show you just how to do that in this crochet blanket pattern. I’m so excited to share with you this Jabble Chevron Blanket free crochet pattern!

The name of this chevron blanket, “Jabble”, is inspired by the Scottish word which is defined as, “Agitated movement of water; a splashing or dashing in small waves or ripples; where currents meet, the water is said to be “jabbly”. Since a chevron is a wave shape, I found the name to be quite fitting. Also, it’s a fun word to say. I dare you to say it out loud right now…

JABBLE. Fun, don’t you think?

Chevron Blanket Free Crochet Pattern Notes & Tips:

This crochet chevron blanket pattern is written in US terms. If needed, you can find a handy term conversion chart right here in my Resource Library. I recommend giving the pattern a read-through before you begin so you can visualize the big picture and consider any specific notes for help along the way! The printable pattern in my Etsy shop comes with LOTS of in-the-making photos for each step of the way as well.

I’ve also filmed a video tutorial for the Jabble Chevron Blanket which can be found further down in this post and on YouTube! So, if you’re more of a visual learner or just need some added help as you’re following the written pattern, definitely check out the video!

Size & Gauge:

Size: Before you begin, take a look at the size chart for this blanket below. It will help you get started off on the right foot! The pattern is written in 5 different standard blanket sizes. The size chart will show you how many chains to start off with and how many rows to make to accomplish the size you’re looking for.

If you want to go off the beaten path and make your own size, the provided gauge along with the size chart will give you an idea of where to start.

This blanket pattern is written as follows: Infant(Baby, Toddler, Lap, Throw) following in parenthesis. The blanket in the photos is the baby blanket size and measures 36″ x 29″.

Gauge: 4”x4” of half double crochet = 16 stitches x 8 rows.

Yarn:

Take your choice of yarn! Choose colors that bring you joy and fibers that feel good between your fingers. I used cotton yarn for this pattern because I originally designed it as a baby blanket. Cotton is natural, washable, soft, and hypoallergenic – making it perfectly baby-safe.

But you can choose any yarn that you’d like – just make sure you adjust the hook size to match!

It’s very important for me to use only sustainable and eco-friendly yarn so I feel good about the impact I’m making on the environment with my craft.

The Pattern

NOTES:

  • Each “V” shape is called a chevron
  • The chevron repeat is 33 + 3. This means you’ll chain 33 for each chevron + 3 additional chains. For example, for 2 chevrons, you’ll chain 66 + 3 for a total of 69 chains. For 3 chevrons, you’ll chain 99 + 3 for a total of 102 chains. Refer to the size chart above for standard sizes and measurements to determine the size of blanket you want to make.
  • This pattern follows the color changes based on how I designed the blanket. The solids are made up of 2 rows and each of the thicker sections of “splash – vibrant bloom” are 6 rows each.
  • After the foundation row, all rows are crocheted into the back loop only (BLO) which creates the ribbed texture.
  • Chain 1 and turn at the end of every row. Turning chain does not count as a stitch.

Begin by chaining 102(135, 168, 201, 234)

Row 1: sk 1st ch from hook, hdc2tog, hdc 15, (3 hdc in next st, hdc 15, hdc3tog, hdc 14) x2(3, 4, 5, 6), 3 hdc in next st, hdc 15, hdc2tog [99](132, 165, 198, 231)

Row 2: BLO hdc2tog, hdc 15, (3 hdc in next st, hdc 15, hdc3tog, hdc 14) x2(3, 4, 5, 6), 3 hdc in next st, hdc 15, hdc2tog [99](132, 165, 198, 231)

Row 3-56(70, 91, 105, 126): repeat row 2, changing colors as indicated

Alpine Bath Spa Set Free Crochet Pattern

Bath Spa Set Free Crochet Pattern – the Alpine Bath Collection

Add a little luxury spa to your bath time routine with this Alpine Bath Spa Set free crochet pattern bundle! Included in the bundle are a loofah, washcloth, soap saver and face scrubbie with storage basket. This eco-friendly and sustainable spa set will make an extra special gift for someone you love. Made with 100% organic cotton these bath items are machine washable and dryable. What’s more is they come together quick and easy, making this a perfect project for the beginner!

Start the spa set now by downloading the FREE PDF from the Resource Library here or Pin it for later!

Let’s talk about what makes these pieces from the Alpine Bath spa set free crochet pattern so ideal. First, the washcloth.

Crochet washcloths are a dime a dozen, right?

But I’ve taken extra time to make sure this one has the perfect balance between luxuriously soft and moderately textured for gentle exfoliation and washing. The stitch used gives it the perfect weight – not too thin and not too thick so as to compromise the drapey softness of the fabric. If you just want the Alpine Bath washcloth pattern, it can also be downloaded from the Resource Library here.

My other favorite thing about this washcloth is that you don’t have to make a border! The natural border this pattern creates is beautiful. It has a slightly scalloped look along the edge. The pattern is simple with repeat rows that come together quickly and easily – allowing you to get into a nice mindless flow while you’re waiting for an appointment or watching your favorite show.

Next, the soap saver.

This soap saver pouch is great for using with a full bar of soap inside. The ribbed texture is wonderful for exfoliation as it doubles as a washcloth. Alternatively, you can use it to collect all the little end bits of soap bars – when it gets filled up it’s like having a whole bar of soap again! The printable soap saver crochet pattern can be downloaded from the resource library individually or as part of the spa set.

Next, the face scrubbies!

Re-usable face scrubbies are BY FAR my absolutely favorite daily-use crochet item. I use them every day with a bit of Thayers Witch Hazel Facial Toner first thing in the morning to freshen up – especially when I’m not jumping in the shower right away (or at all that day). Just toss them in the hamper and wash. I keep 10-12 of them in rotation at all times. These crochet face scrubbies tuck away in the storage basket and are a great opportunity to make your daily life and crochet life more eco-friendly and sustainable.

Finally, this luxurious loofah.

I LOVE this loofah. It is the ultimate addition to your spa set, offering something a bit more exciting than the standard washcloth. This washable shower pouf is the perfect balance between gentle exfoliation from texture and soft cleansing from the organic cotton.

Christmas Lights Garland Free Crochet Pattern

Do you ever miss the old “vintage” Christmas lights adorning all the houses in the neighborhood? They lasted forever, and when ONE went out, you could easily replace it. Yea, they just don’t make them like that anymore. So take a step back in time with this christmas lights garland free crochet pattern.

Christmas Lights Garland Free Crochet Pattern Pinterest Pin

Spiffed up with a few golden stars, this garland can be used to decorate any room in the house! I needed my garland to fill a 58″ mantle. I made 10 bulbs and 3 stars, spacing them by about 3 inches each. Arranging them on the jute, I used the pattern: 2 bulbs, 1 star, 3 bulbs, 1 star, 3 bulbs, 1 star, 2 bulbs. Use your creative preference based on the space you want to fill with this garland!

Yarn & Stuffing:

Yarn: Take your choice of yarn! Choose colors that bring you joy and fibers that feel good between your fingers. I use 100% organic cotton in a DK weight for this christmas lights garland.

It’s very important for me to use only sustainable and eco-friendly yarn so I feel good about the impact I’m making on the environment with my craft. With the bulbs and stars for this garland I use 100% organic cotton versus conventional cotton.

Sustainable Stuffing: Since these pieces are so small, it’s a great opportunity to use up all those little yarn bits you’ve been saving away – yea, the ones you snip off after weaving in ends and such. You can also use strips of old clothing cut up into strips. Even thrift stores can be picky these days, so turn your old dingy and stained clothing into stuffing bits!

    • 3 stitches in between each point
  • the 5 stitches going up and down each side of the point are made in the (sl st, sc, hdc, dc, tr) combination that is made when crocheting into the chain creating each point
  • the 3 stitches in between each point are made in the (sl st, sc, sl st) combination that happens between each triangular star point
Christmas Lights Garland Free Crochet Pattern Image 13

ASSEMBLE THE STAR:

  • Arrange the two stars with wrong sides facing in
  • Using a tapestry and the long tail left on one of the stars, sew them together by inserting the needle under both loops of both starts, back and forth along the entire border (not a whip stitch).
  • Before sewing the last point, lightly stuff the star, including the points. Don’t stuff so full that the stuffing will show through the looser dc and tr stitches.
  • Using the yarn tail or another snippet of yarn, add a small loop to one of the points for hanging.

Yarn & Stuffing:

Yarn: Take your choice of yarn! Choose colors that bring you joy and fibers that feel good between your fingers. I use super chunky yarn for these pumpkins!

It’s very important for me to use only sustainable and eco-friendly yarn so I feel good about the impact I’m making on the environment with my craft. With these pumpkins, however, I shopped my stash to use up old yarn that had been waiting for a smaller project. You can do the same – but just remember if you use anything other than super bulky yarn, the finished pumpkins will be different sizes than mine (which is totally okay!)

The Pattern

Notes:

  • The pumpkin is worked by creating a long rectangle of turning rows, seaming the rectangle into a tube and cinching the top and bottom closed
  • Chain 1 and turn at the end of every row. The turning chain does not count as a stitch.
  • If making stripes, it doesn’t matter which of the 2 colors you start with.
  • The pumpkins use the super bulky yarn with a 9.00 mm crochet hook

Leave a long starting tail before your slip knot. The tail will be used to cinch the pumpkin closed.

Row 1: fhdc 15 for small (M: 20, L: 25) Row 2: fphdc across

If making stripes, switch colors. If making solid, continue with same color.

Row 3: FLO hdc across
Row 4: 3rd loop only hdc across

If making stripes, switch colors. If making solid, continue with same color.

Row 5-20 (M:5-24, L:5-32): repeat rows 1-4, for a total of 5 sections for the small pumpkin, 6 sections for the medium, and 8 sections for the large. Each section consists of 4 rows. Note, that as you crochet the repeat rows, row “1” will be a row of standard hdc, versus the foundation hdc you did for the first row to start the pumpkin.

Spooky Halloween Pumpkin Decoration Free Crochet Pattern Image Laid out

SEAM THE RECTANGLE INTO A TUBE:

You now have a long rectangle. The right side is the one with the ridges that were created by the front post stitches. Bring the short sides together, with the wrong side facing out. Sl st along the edge through both stitches of both ends. Still with the wrong side out, use a tapestry needle and weave the yarn end in and out along the edge of the tube. Only pick up a single loop as you weave through, or else there will be too much material when you cinch the tube closed. Cinch tightly and secure with a few stitches. This is the bottom of the pumpkin.

Flip the tube right side out. Using a tapestry needle and a yarn tail, weave the end in and out along the edge of the tube. Just as you did with the bottom, only pick up a single loop as you weave through, or else there will be too much material when you cinch the tube closed. Stuff the pumpkin and cinch closed, leaving enough of a gap to insert your stem of choice. Tie off, but leave a long tail for shaping.

SHAPE THE PUMPKIN

Using a long piece of yarn, bring the yarn from top to bottom along the outside, in between row 2 and 3 (or any line between a fpdc and FLO hdc row). Thread the needle through the bottom of the pumpkin and pull tightly to create a wedge. Secure the yarn on the bottom and continue the process of creating the wedges like this all the way around. The large pumpkin has 8 sections, the medium has 6 sections and the small has 5 sections. Secure and tie off the yarn and pull to the inside.

General Notes:

This autumn pumpkin decoration free crochet pattern is written in US terms. If needed, you can find a handy term conversion chart right here in my Resource Library. I recommend giving the pattern a read-through before you begin so you can visualize the big picture and consider any specific notes for help along the way!

Size & Gauge:

Size:
Small pumpkin: 6″ wide x 4″ tall
Medium pumpkin: 8: wide x 5.5″ tall
Large pumpkin: 10″ wide x 8″ tall

Gauge: 4”x4” of half double crochet = 9 stitches x 5 rows. Ultimately with these, gauge isn’t critical. It won’t have to fit someone’s body or a specific space. My patterns will include the size of the finished item based on the yarn and hook I use. But if you want it smaller or bigger, just use a bigger or smaller yarn and hook!

10 Tips for sustainable crochet image reuse all yarn snippets

Yarn & Stuffing:

Yarn: Take your choice of yarn! Choose colors that bring you joy and fibers that feel good between your fingers. I use super chunky yarn for these pumpkins!

It’s very important for me to use only sustainable and eco-friendly yarn so I feel good about the impact I’m making on the environment with my craft. With these pumpkins, however, I shopped my stash to use up old yarn that had been waiting for a smaller project. You can do the same – but just remember if you use anything other than super bulky yarn, the finished pumpkins will be different sizes than mine (which is totally okay!)

The Legal Stuff:

The Pattern

Notes:

  • The pumpkin is worked by creating a long rectangle of turning rows, seaming the rectangle into a tube and cinching the top and bottom closed
  • Chain 1 and turn at the end of every row. The turning chain does not count as a stitch.

Leave a long starting tail before your slip knot. The tail will be used to cinch the pumpkin closed.

Row 1: fhdc 10 for small (M: 20, L: 30)

Row 2: fphdc across

Row 3: FLO hdc across

Row 4: 3rd loop only hdc across

Row 5-16 (M:5-20, L:5-24): repeat rows 1-4, for a total of 4 sections for the small pumpkin, 5 sections for the medium, and 6 sections for the large. Each section consists of 4 rows. Note, that as you crochet the repeat rows, row “1” will be a row of standard hdc, versus the foundation hdc you did for the first row to start the pumpkin.

LEAF ON LARGE PUMPKIN:

Row 1: ch 6, sc in 2nd ch from hk, dc in 3rd ch from hk,

tc in 4th ch from hk, dc in 5th ch from hk, sc in last ch. Fasten off.

SEAM THE RECTANGLE INTO A TUBE:

You now have a long rectangle. The right side is the one with the ridges that were created by the front post stitches. Bring the short sides together, with the wrong side facing out. Sl st along the edge through both stitches of both ends. Still with the wrong side out, use a tapestry needle and weave the yarn end in and out along the edge of the tube. Only pick up a single loop as you weave through, or else there will be too much material when you cinch the tube closed. Cinch tightly and secure with a few stitches. This is the bottom of the pumpkin.

Flip the tube right side out. Using a tapestry needle and a yarn tail, weave the end in and out along the edge of the tube. Just as you did with the bottom, only pick up a single loop as you weave through, or else there will be too much material when you cinch the tube closed. Stuff the pumpkin and cinch closed, leaving enough of a gap to insert your stem of choice. Tie off, but leave a long tail for shaping.

SHAPE THE PUMPKIN

Using a long piece of yarn, bring the yarn from top to bottom along the outside, in between row 2 and 3 (or any line between a fpdc and FLO hdc row). Thread the needle through the bottom of the pumpkin and pull tightly to create a wedge. Secure the yarn on the bottom and continue the process of creating the wedges like this all the way around. The large pumpkin has 6 sections, the medium has 5 sections and the small has 4 sections. Secure and tie off the yarn and pull to the inside. Put in your stems of choice! Enjoy!
