Elongated chevron knit stitch pattern is an easy knit stitch suitable for beginner knitters. Using only a combination of knit and purl stitches, a rib-like chevron fabric is created on a garter stitch background. From the first stitch to the last stitch, the chevron enfolds.
The pattern is reversible and is a 16-row repeat and the number of stitches used are in multiples of 18 + 1.
more about the elongated chevron knit stitch pattern
- The pattern is reversible, meaning the front of the work matches the back of the work.
- It is an easy pattern and no special knitting techniques such as yarn overs are required.
- This elongated pattern creates a simple pattern with a unique texture.
- The fabric created is soft and stretchy making it suitable for various knitting projects.
