Crochet Squared-Off Chevron Baby Blanket

Thank you to the many of you on Instagram and in our Daisy Farm Crafters group for suggesting a name for this blanket. 

I’ve settled on Squared-Off Chevron since I think it closely describes the technique of filling in the peaks and valleys. It is such a great look.

I’ve made a tweak to the original chevron pattern I made several years ago by eliminating the skip two for the valleys and substituting 2 sets of single crochet two together as a replacement. I’m hoping that it will help in keeping the counting a bit easier. 

Thank you as always to our friends at Yarnspirations for sending us Bernat Softee Cotton. It’s so so nice for baby blankets and baby sweaters. It’s a cotton blend and the colors in the line are just gorgeous.

Fill the Valleys on the bottom of the blanket by pulling up your first loop in the starting chain corner. Follow the instructions for “Filling in the Valley’s” above with the exception that the SC2tog are worked across 3 sts instead of 4. The middle “legs” of the stitch share the same st on the first row where you are working on the underside of the starting chain. 

The rest of the instructions for filling in the valley are the same as above. The only exception is on the first row.

Border: With blue, work 2 SC at the end of each row, skip a row. Work 3 SC into each corner. Join with a slip stitch to the first st and CH 1. Continue in the same direction working 1 HDC into each SC and 3 HDC into each corner st. Do not join, continue in the same direction with 1 round of SC, working the SC in between each HDC and 3 into each corner st.  Don’t join, continue in same direction with working 1 SC into each SC and 3 SC into each corner, slip stitch at the end of the second round of SC and tie off.
