Easy Chevron Baby Blanket
I chose to carry up the yarn when changing colors instead of breaking the yarn and weaving in all those ends. Choose which method works best for you.
34" x 41"
Gauge isn't super important with this blanket, but each chevron peak = 5 inches across and 3 inches from top of peak to base line (if a straight line had been drawn from tip to tip).
-Yarn: I used 1 skein of Caron One Pound in Forest Green (Color B), 1/2 skein of Caron One Pound in each of Pale Green (Color A) and Soft Sage (Color C).
-Size I/5.5 mm Crochet Hook
Ch = Chain Stitch
Dc = Double Crochet Stitch
Dc3tog = Double Crochet 3 Together
St = Stitch
Sc = Single Crochet Stitch
Sc2tog = Single Crochet 2 Together
Sl st = Slip Stitch
Starting With Color A, Ch 178. (or multiple of 22 + 2 for different sizes)
Row 1: Skip 2 ch, work 2 dc in next ch, *1 dc in next 7 ch, dc3tog x 2, 1 dc in next 7 ch, 3 dc in next ch x 2. Repeat from * 6 more times. 1 dc in next 7 ch, dc3tog x 2, 1 dc in next 7 ch, 3 dc in next ch, ch 2, turn.
Row 2: 2 dc in 1st st, *1 dc in next 7 sts, dc3tog x 2, 1 dc in next 7 sts, 3 dc in next st x 2. Repeat from * 6 more times. 1 dc in next 7 sts, dc3tog x 2, 1 dc in next 7 sts, 3 dc in top of turning chain, ch 2, turn.
Attach Color B
Repeat Row 2 until blanket is desired length alternating colors every 2 rows. If you are using 3 colors like I did, after the 6th Color B stripe, attach Color C and continue alternating every 2 rows.
Bind off and weave in ends. If you are doing the border, you don't have to break the Color B yarn if you are okay with starting where it's located.
Sc around entire blanket (using Color B). In the peaks and valleys, do the increases (3sc) and decreases (sc2tog). In the corners, do 2 sc sts. After going all the way around, join to 1st sc with a sl st, bind off and weave in end.
