Before getting started, master the technique of changing colors in crochet. Our video tutorial will walk you through the basics of How to Change Colors at the End of a Row. Check it out and make the process of working up this or any chevron blanket a breeze!
Chevron Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern:
Note: I recommend that you change colors only at the end of even rows so that every new color begins on an odd row. On my blanket, each stripe is 6 rows tall, for a total of 8 stripes.
