I love making things with a chevron pattern. They’re fun, easy and can be used to make something for anyone. Recently, I received a custom order request for giant chevron throw, and although I’ve shared a pattern for a knitted chevron blanket before, I thought I would show you how to work a crochet chevron stitch. This pattern is really simple and after you work a row or two, you really get the hang of it. This is going up as a precursor to my Mocha Ripple Throw pattern, which will be up in few days. So, let’s dive right in!
How to Crochet Chevron Stitch
Let’s begin with the video. I love being able to share these tutorials with you through videos. It makes everything much clearer and you can see me creating the stitches in real time. If you want to check out some other videos, head over to my Youtube channel and subscribe!
That’s all there is to it! The crochet chevron stitch sample I used is worked in half double crochets (HDC), but you can easily do this with single crochets or double crochets, or any other stitch you want. The main thing is to create the peaks and valleys with increases and decreases.
Crochet Chevron Pattern:
1. First create a chain that is a multiple of 13 + 1. I used 27 chains to start my sample, but I should have done 3 repeats to show how the middle peaks differ. SO, start with a chain of 40.
2. Insert your hook in the 2nd chain from the hook and pull up a loop. Then insert into the next chain and pull up another loop. Yarn over (YO) and pull through all three loops. This is a decrease.
Work 4 HDC, then work 3 HDC into the same space. HDC 5 to go down the side of the peak, then skip two chain spaces to create the valley. *HDC 5, 3 HDC into the same space, HDC 5, skip 2 spaces*, repeat this until the last 6 spaces. Then, HDC 4, and decrease over the last two spaces.
The first row is done!
3. Chain 1, turn.
Insert your hook in the chain and pull up a loop. Then insert into the next space and pull up another loop. Yarn over (YO) and pull through all three loops.
HDC 4, then work 3 HDC into the same space. HDC 5, then skip two spaces . *HDC 5, 3 HDC into the same space, HDC 5, skip 2 spaces*, repeat this until the last side. HDC 4, then decrease over the next two spaces.
Leave the last stitch unworked.
4. Now, just repeat step 3 for each row until you get a piece that’s as big as you want it. Here is my sample after working the crochet chevron stitch for 10 rows. Again, I only did 2 repeats, but yours should have a 3rd peak.
See how easy that is!
I hope you guys enjoyed this quick little tutorial. I’ll be back in a few days to share the pattern for the Mocha Ripple Throw. This throw is the biggest thing I’ve made so far and it’s really easy to recreate. Here’s a sneak peek o it!
