The Chevron Bobble Blanket | Free Crochet Pattern

Today, I’m excited to share one of my all-time favorite designs, The Chevron Bobble Blanket! Over the years I’ve gained a huge love for chevrons. I think it stems from the popular chevron blankets from my childhood in the 80’s.

I’m also largely into interior design, which inspired me to create a chevron themed throw pillow for my living room. I had a very specific idea in my head, and once my hands got to work, out came The Chevron Bobble Pillow.

It was exactly how I imagined, and I knew it needed a counterpart, and ultimately The Chevron Bobble Blanket was born!!

The pattern is rated Easy. It uses basic crochet stitches such as single, half double, and double crochet. It’s a great pattern for the advanced beginner to move to the next level, learn some new stitches, such as the bobble stitch, and follow a chart.

The Chevron Bobble Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

This blanket is a quick work-up, it’s small (lap sized), worked in rows, and made with super bulky yarn. You’ll have it done in a few hours.

I chose Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick in the color Fisherman, because it’s a nice neutral color that really allows the bobbles to pop. I suggest a solid color to show the pattern of the chevron best.

Thank you to Lion Brand Yarns for supplying the yarn for this beautiful project!


The completed blanket measures 32” x 48-50”, it’s a small lap or throw size than can easily be draped on the corner of your chair or couch, to grab quickly when you need a little warmth.

I used a large hook to give it a little more movement. It is indeed heavy and luxurious, definitely a cold weather blanket. I joked with my husband that it’s like a weighted blanket!

Feel free to go up a hook size or two if you want a bit more flow (bonus- this will create a larger blanket, but it may also require more yarn), and just play around with what works best for you!

The repeated chevron design is worked in increments of 16. You can adjust the pattern by adding or subtracting 16 stitches from the beginning foundation row.

Finishing Border

– you’ll now be working a continuous rnd along the perimeter of the rectangle to create a border
– do NOT join at the end of each rnd, mark the 1st st of each rnd with a st marker
– if the border tends to ripple or wave, try going down a hook size, but be careful that the corners aren’t worked too tightly or they’ll curl up.

Rnd 1-3.
With right side facing, ch1, sc around the entire perimeter of the piece, working 3sc in each corner, 1sc in each row end, and 1sc in each st along row 91 and the foundation ch.

Fasten off by joining with sl st in beg sc, weave in loose ends.

If needed you can block your project, but I found mine really didn’t need it.

Your blanket is complete, Enjoy!!
