Update//Chevron Stitch Tutorial

3 Comments

Hello, sweet friends! It feels like it’s been forever since I last posted. Life has gotten so busy all of a sudden, and I have to prioritize. I’ve been working on a special knitting project for a friend of mine, and haven’t had a lot of time to do much else. However, I am not complaining. This project has been a new experience for me, and besides, sometimes it’s nice to slow down and work on one project as opposed to the TEN I’m usually trying to do all at once!

So, I don’t have much to offer in this post, but I do have some pictures of what I’ve been up to lately, and also a fun tutorial for a cute chevron stitch that you’ve got to try! Check it out:

Made with Repix (http://repix.it)

***You will need to know how to Knit and Purl***

***Cast on in multiples of 6, plus 5***

***Start on the “wrong” side of your work, or what I would call the “knit” side for this project***

  • Row 1: K5, *P1, K5; Rep from * to end of row
  • Row 2: K1, *P3, K3; Rep from * to last 4 sts, P3, K1
  • Row 3: P2, *K1, P2; Rep from * to end of row
  • Row 4: P1, *K3, P3; Rep from * to last 4 sts, K3, P1
  • Row 5: K2, *P1, K5; Rep from * to last 3 sts, P1, K2
  • Row 6: Purl all stitches

Repeat until you have reached your desired length
