Sweet Pea granny chevron crochet pattern inspiration
I love ripples. Ok chevrons. I can’t decide why calling it a chevron doesn’t really work for me but to my mind they are the things painted on the road surface NOT the undulating pattern that you create with crochet stitches. Anyway. After designing Rheanna, I had a brief thought that I wanted to design another chevron shawl pattern, this granny chevron shawl pattern is mostly the realisation of that idea.
For a while it had been circling in my brain to design one on a long chain as the peaks would fall across the body and add additional features to the overall result. On my travels to London it popped into my head that I could do this with the granny merge design that I had used in the Granny Merge Cocoon. While this design isn’t a straight transfer of that stitch pattern it does feature some of the same elements. Sweet Pea features the traditional granny stitch, simpler rows of dc stitches and v stitches throughout the shawl.
Easy crochet chevron shawl pattern yarn & materials
To design my Sweet Pea I turned to a favourite – Sultan Deluxe from Hobbii. The colour I used is Delongh Star Ruby – featuring a white/pink/purple gradient which is bold and bright and one of my favourites in the collection. This yarn is 100% cotton, 1000m/1092yds gradient yarn cake priced at £21.00. These cakes are regularly available on sale – which is when I get them.
Chevron crochet pattern info & tips
Sweet Pea, the granny chevron shawl is a beginner crochet pattern. Although this features a few different stitch patterns, all are made using standard crochet stitches. When working this easy crochet chevron pattern I recommend that you use stitch markers, especially when changing between stitches, as this will help you to keep track of where you are in the repeats.
Normally, gauge isn’t super important in my shawl designs, however, almost the entire cake of Sultan Deluxe, so if you do not match my gauge or use an alternative yarn you may need more total yardage to complete your easy crochet chevron shawl.
Blocking, again, not essential, but will definitely help to open up all the stitches and make the alternate stitches visible in this easy granny chevron pattern.
