8 Crochet Chevrons That Are Totally On Point


Move aside, groovy chevron blankets from the 1970s (but don't go far, we still love you!). Crochet chevrons are making a comeback, and we're here for it. Check out some of our favorite ways to make waves.

Classic Double Crochet Ripple

Yes, this chevron pattern is pretty traditional, but check out those dramatic points! Two types of increases and decreases are worked here to create that eyelet detail at each point. Work from a modern color palette for a fresh look, or go old school cool for a vintage vibe.

Mesh Chevron

If you want a fabric that's open and airy, look no further. Skipped stitches and chains make the mesh, while the peaks are and valleys are formed with intense bursts of increases and decreases (crochet five together, anyone?)

Chevrons: you know 'em, you love 'em. But did you know there are seemingly endless ways to make those pleasing zigzag patterns?

Single Crochet Pointy Ripple

The sharp points on this clean chevron are made by skipping stitches, rather then crocheting stitches together. Since there aren't any holes, you can expect a sturdy (some might say dense) fabric from this pattern.

Super Sharp Chevrons

If you like a nice pointy chevron, this is your stitch. Strategically placed ch-1 stitches at the peaks and valleys bring the drama, while the subtle shell stitch brings balance with its somewhat delicate effect.

Raised Chevrons

This highly textured effect has waves on waves! (And it's easy.) By working rows through the back loop only, you get a totally different look. Bonus: this stitch looks awesome in a single color.

Puff Stitch Chevrons

Two classics collide and the results are SO worth it. Puff stitches give this pattern all the texture, but they don't complicate the chevron shaping one bit — that happens on totally different rows. In other words, this deliciously textured, delightfully zig-zaggy pattern is easier than it looks.

Bobble Stitch Chevrons

We see you, puff stitch, and raise you one. These bobbles pop right off the fabric. This stitch is a home run for baby blankets — little hands LOVE squishing bobbles.

Faux Chevrons

At first glance, this stitch pattern doesn't scream chevron — it's missing the telltale peaks and valleys running along the bottom edge — but it still has the overall feel of a classic chevron. Clever color changes create the gentle ripple pattern. Go high contrast with your colors to make the pattern pop.
