Elongated Chevron Stitch Pattern is an easy combination of knit and purl stitches. As you can see from the pictures, the pattern creates endless repeats of zigzag rows. It’s called ‘Elongated Chevron’ as the chevrons are quite tall!
It is an interesting and easy pattern which creates a fabric that’s reversible. Overall, it adds a bit of texture to your project without making it bulky. And although it looks complicated, it’s quite simple. There are just four different rows that are knit in different order so that the ‘V’ shapes are created in the design.
As Elongated Chevron Stitch is a reversible pattern, it is an excellent choice when it comes to knitting scarves, cowls, or blankets.
