The crochet chevron stitch is a modern twist on the classic ripple stitch. It’s reversible and creates a dense fabric making it a great choice for all sorts of projects.
Pair the crochet chevron stitch with just about any yarn in your stash from lightweight to super bulky. Choosing multiple colors of smooth yarns will showcase the design and really make your project pop.
Supplies used in demonstration video:

Additional Notes: Ch 1 at beginning of rows does not count as a stitch. By working your stitches in the back loops only, the pattern will look ridged and have more texture. You can use the same stitch pattern to work in the stitches as normal for a flatter, smoother look.
Row 1: Ch a number of sts divisible by 11 and add 2 at the end. 2 sc in 2nd ch from hk. *1 sc in next 4 ch. Sk 2 ch. 1 sc in next 4 ch. 3 sc in next ch. Rep from * to last 11 ch. 1 sc in next 4 ch. Sk 2 ch. 1 sc in next 4 ch. 2 sc in last ch. Turn.
Row 2: Ch 1. 2 sc in BLO of first st. *1 sc in BLO of next 4 sts. Sk 2 sts. 1 sc in BLO of next 4 sts. 3 sc in BLO of next st. Rep from * to last 11 sts. 1 sc in BLO of next 4 sts. Sk 2 sts. 1 sc in BLO of next 4 sts. 2 sc in BLO of last st. Turn.
Tip: For a flatter look, work in both loops of the stitch rather than the back loops.
Repeat: Rep row last row until your project measures the length you want. Bind off as usual.
