The Crochet Chevron Swirls – Pattern Description
The Crochet Chevron Swirls stitch is a lacey double-sided stitch pattern made up of double crochet clusters with curvy peaks. It’s so fun to make and likely to be your new favorite chevron stitch variation!
Because it creates slightly rounder points than traditional chevron stitch and is made mainly of bobble stitches, it gives your fabric a beautiful ice cream-like swirls effect, especially when using multiple colors.
It is an ideal stitch for decorative afghans, garments, fashion accessories, and any projects that need visual interest.
I used a 4.5 mm crochet hook and acrylic DK yarn for this tutorial, but feel free to choose any hook size and yarn weight you prefer.
This stitch pattern looks good crocheted in any color, but I think it stands out more when made in two or more colors. You can check out the swatches below to see some color samples.

Bobble stitch made with 3 incomplete double crochet (bo) – This bobble is made out of 3 incomplete double crochets made into the same stitch or chain space, joined at the top.
To make an incomplete double crochet stitch: yarn over, insert your hook into the next available stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop (3 loops on your hook). Yarn over and pull through 2 loops on your hook (2 loops on your hook). Leave the incomplete double crochet stitch on your hook.
Repeat the previous steps and create 2 more incomplete double crochet stitches into the same stitch ( you will have 4 loops on your hook).
Yarn over and pull through all the loops on your hook.
- The stitches between ( ) are to be made into the same stitch or chain space (as instructed).
- The stitches between * * are to be repeated as many times as instructed.
- If the pattern contains stitches between ** **, they are to be repeated as many times as instructed, including the * * repeats within.
Starting Chain: This pattern requires you to chain multiples of 17chs + 3chs. My starting chain is 54chs.
