The chevron pattern creates a zig zag like design over the garment, giving any item a modern twist, effortlessly. Many knitters opt for bright yarn in a range of contrasting colours to make the pattern pop even more! The zig-zag pattern is distinctive, unique, and has a lot of character. It’s perfect for knitters who like to make original knits that can’t be found in the shop! Your chevron knit is going to be the talk of the town, and if you’re looking for the perfect chevron stitch pattern, you’re in the right place.

How to Knit the Chevron Design?

The chevron stitch is far easier than it looks! The arrow shape is made when you stack increases on top of increases and decrease techniques on top of decreases. Rows form in a diagonal shape upward, creating an arrow shape. When you use different colors of yarn for each section you’ll make a funky 70s inspired zig-zag pattern. Alternatively, you can choose a solid block colour for a simple, textured garment. You can customise the chevron stitch to your heart’s content. That’s why we love it so much!
