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!
Dive into it now, or Pin it for later!
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.
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.

- 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 (132, 165, 198, 231)
