Rich Kids Chevron Blanket

You will want to make this time and time again. Not only is the chevron visually appealing, but this texture is to die for and I am already planning a king size throw with it. With this texture, a neutral, solid color throw would be divine. Video walk-through is embedded at the bottom of the page and available to help you work the border.

Here is a closeup of my Lovey Shells and Chevrons which shows just how it looks in solid. I love it!

Before the border

Measurements in Pattern –  Laying flat, each ripple (12 stitches) equals 3”, 10 rows equal 5”.

Gauge – Standard HDC 4″ = 13 stitches, 9 rows

Stitch Guide in American Terms
HDC – half double crochet
DC – double crochet
TR – triple/treble crochet
Quad Tr – quadruple treble crochet

Pattern Notes:  Rich Kids Chevron is one piece worked flat from the bottom up. Half double crochets at the beginning and ends of rows are worked under both loops while half double crochets within the chevron are worked in the 3rd loop only. Turning chain does not count as a stitch. Color changes are every 2 rows- occurring on even numbered rows only. Chevron multiples are 12+2. Pattern below gives chain start, ripple repeats, and row amounts for a Baby Blanket. Start chain numbers, ripple repeats, and row amounts for larger sizes are available in the stitch guide above.To increase the length of the blanket, continue the sequence of colors by repeating from Row 1 until you reach the desired length.
Here is a video How to Crochet Chevron Ribbing –  working in the 3rd loop.
