Chevrons are one style they never loses its popularity and with the many different ways to create a crochet chevron, you’ll see a variety of different looks that can be created with this simple crochet technique.

This tutorial will show you how to crochet a chevron using a US Double crochet (UK Treble crochet) which is perfect for projects you’d like to see working up quickly. You will also see variations using the same stitch pattern but using stitches with a smaller height including single crochet stitches (UK double crochet stitches).

I’ve featured the Simple Chevron Crochet Stitch in one of the 3 cushions in the Springtime Cushion Collection and used 3 different Spring colours to crochet a bright cushion for my lounge.

The chevron crochet stitch can also be used to make so many other crochet projects such as blankets, garments and scarves! I’m just working on a skirt design that uses a variation of the crochet chevron that I can’t wait to share with you!

You can use any yarn with the hook size as recommended on the yarn band.

How to Crochet the Chevron Crochet Stitch

This chevron crochet stitch is worked in multiples of 10 stitches, plus 1 extra stitch for the row. When starting the chain for the project you also need to add 3 chains for the turning chain.

  • Chain multiples of 10 plus 1, plus 3. In this tutorial we will make a chain of 24 to start our swatch.

The chevrons are created by increasing and decreasing regularly across the row. In this stitch pattern we will be using a Dc3Togto decrease our stitches. There is a full video tutorial below to take you through how to crochet the chevron crochet stitch pattern.
