Free Crochet Pattern- The Happy Herringbone Chevron Blanket!

*This post may contain affiliate links.

I LOVE the Herringbone Double Crochet stitch and I love sport weight yarn, so I combined the two to create this fun baby blanket! The pattern is FREE below or you can purchase the pdf for $1 on Ravelry.

I used Knit Picks Brava Sport for this pattern and it worked up beautifully! Brava Sport is one of my favorite yarns to work with because it is soft, sturdy, and very affordable at just $1.99/skein!

Materials

  • 2-4 colors sport weight yarn (approximately 273 yards each color for 4 colors)
  • H/8(5.00mm) hook or hook to obtain gauge
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape
  • Tapestry Needle

Difficulty

  • Easy

Gauge

  • 14 herr-dc + 9 rows = 4”

Sizing

  • Baby Blanket- 30” x 34”

Pattern Notes

Starting chain does not count as first stitch.

Make the blanket as wide as you like by chaining multiples of 16 + 2 until desired width.

Blanket pictured is made with 4 different colors, changing colors every 2 rows.
