Zigzag crochet blankets are distinct and charming handmade pieces that add a touch of warmth and style to any space. The zigzag pattern is characterized by diagonal lines alternating between contrasting colors, creating a vibrant and dynamic look. These blankets are often crafted using simple crochet stitches such as single crochet or double crochet, making them accessible even for beginners in crocheting.

One of the most captivating features of zigzag crochet blankets is their versatility. They can be customized according to individual color preferences and style, allowing for a wide range of creative combinations. Moreover, the zigzag pattern can be adapted to different blanket sizes, from small ones for babies to larger ones for decorating beds or sofas, making them an ideal option for gifts or home décor.

In addition to being visually appealing, zigzag crochet blankets are also functional and practical. Crochet provides a soft and cozy texture, perfect for snuggling on chilly days or wrapping around a baby.

  • When starting and finishing each row, work the first and last two stitches in both loops of the stitches from the previous row. For the remaining stitches in the row, only work through the back loop of the stitches from the previous row.
  • For a neat starting edge, make sure to work the stitches of Row 1 into the back loop of the foundation chain.
  • When changing colors, don’t cut off the old color. Instead, carry it up the side of your work. Be careful not to pull too tightly, as this can cause the edges to gather. Also, avoid carrying the unused colors too loosely, which can leave loops of yarn along the sides. At the end of each row, twist the colors together to help keep them secure.


Making a Zigzag Blanket

Getting Started:

With yarn color A, make a chain of 180 stitches.

Row 1 (Right Side):

Single crochet (sc) in the second chain from the hook, then sc in the next chain.

Skip one chain, then sc in the next 11 chains.

Make 3 sc in the next chain to create a corner, then sc in the next 11 chains.

*Skip 2 chains, then sc in the next 11 chains.

Make 3 sc in the next chain, then sc in the next 11 chains.*

Repeat from * to * across the row.

Skip one chain, then sc in the last 2 chains. Turn your work. You should have 7 zigzags.

Rows 2–5:

Chain 1, then sc in the first 2 sc.

Skip the next sc.

Work in the back loops only: sc in the next 11 sc, make 3 sc in the next sc, then sc in the next 11 sc.

*Skip the next 2 sc, then sc in the next 11 sc, make 3 sc in the next sc, then sc in the next 11 sc*.

Repeat from * to * across the row.

Skip the next sc, then sc in the last 2 sc. Turn your work.

Changing Colors:

Drop yarn color A, but don’t cut it. With the wrong side facing you, join yarn color B with a slip stitch in the first stitch of the last row. Carry yarn color A up the side of your work until you need it again.

Rows 6–10:

With yarn color B, repeat Row 2 five times.

Continuing with Different Colors:

Repeat the same pattern of 5 rows for yarn color B, then switch to yarn color C for the next 5 rows. Continue alternating colors until you’ve completed 110 rows in total, ending with 5 rows of yarn color A.

Final Rows:

Repeat the pattern of 5 rows for each color until you reach row 110.


Fasten off the yarn.

Weave in all loose ends using a yarn needle.

Optionally, gently block the blanket to make it look neater.
