Single Chevron Stitch Pattern

The single chevron stitch is a lovely stitch pattern using knit and purl stitches and it creates pretty wavy lines or zigzags across your knitting. It’s very similar to the Ripple Stitch and the Afghan Stitch Patterns which are basically pattern variations. They’re all very pretty and fun to knit.

Chevrons can be thicker or more rounded looking. Or the ‘V’s are more elongated. Some knitted chevron patterns are made with pretty little eyelets for a very feminine, delicate texture. And some stitch patterns are made with different colors for a really vibrant and exciting look and feel.

The chevron stitch pattern looks great on lots of things like knitted blankets, throws, pillow covers and of course it also looks lovely on scarves, pullovers and cardigans too.

Every knitter needs to have a least one single chevron stitch pattern in their library. They have been around since the dawn of time, they’re very popular and the best part of all is they’re lovely. I’d like to try this with a self-striping yarn. I bet that would look great.
