Suggested Supplies

The knit chevron stitch is a versatile stitch, so you can pair it with just about any yarn in your stash from medium to super bulky, smooth to slightly textured.

Supplies used in demonstration video:

  • Red Heart Colorscape Yarn, Rome
  • US 10.5 Knitting Needle
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors

  • K Knit
  • k2tog Knit Two Together
  • kfb Knit Front Back
  • P Purl
  • Rep Repeat
  • RS Right Side
  • S1 K1 psso Slip One Knit One Pass Slipped Stitch Over
  • St(s) Stitch(es)
  • WS Wrong Side

Cast on a multiple of 14 and add two at the end.

Row 1 (ws):  P all sts

Row 2 (rs): K, kfb, *k4, S1 K1 psso, k2tog, k4, kfb twice. Rep from * to last two sts. Kfb then k last st.

Repeat: Rep rows 1 and 2 until your project measures the length you want.

Bind Off

If you want a straight (flat) edge at the bind off edge (this will not match cast on edge) bind off with knit stitches.

If you want the bind off edge to have the same “zig zag” shape as the cast on edge, you will need to bind off in pattern on a right side row, using row 2 as your guideline.

Refer to the video tutorial for step-by-step instructions on this bind off. You can find it at minute mark 13:30!
