Sharing is caring!

The Wave and Chevron Stitch is a really fun variation of a classic ripple or chevron stitch. Each repeat starts with a flat edge. This stitch would be perfect to use on a striped baby blanket.

There are many different ways to change up the stripes on this crochet stitch. It does need to be worked in at least 2 colors to get the full effect of the pattern. In the sample shown, I changed color every 2 rows.

Pattern Reading Tips

  • a number before a stitch (ex: 3 sc) means work that many stitches all in the same stitch
  • a number after a stitch (ex: sc 2) means work the specified stitch in the number of stitches listed
  • stitches in list form separated by commas (ex: sc, hdc, dc,) work across the row placing specified stitches in order listed. Using our example: start with a sc, hdc in next, dc in next.

    Instructions for Row 4 reads “Row 4: Repeat row 30”. As there is no Row 30 I’m assuming this is a typo. Should it read Row 3?

    Row 7: Reads: “Change to Color B, work as row 33” Typo and it should read row 3?

    1. Whoops! Thanks for the heads up, it is correct now.

  2. Thanks for the pattern. Your videos are very easy to follow and this was the perfect pattern for a new blanket I want to start

    Thanks Heather for sharing this tutorial.

    I’m getting back into crochet in my retirement. I remember doing Chevron stitch years ago, but need to re-learn it. That goes for lots of other stitches.

    I appreciate your generosity in sharing your designs. It is great to have the tutorials which are so easy to follow.
