Chevron Stitch pattern, um which one?!
If someone has said this to me before this
endeavor, I mean washcloth, I probably would have thought ‘no big deal’, its just a Chevron Stitch. Well let me tell you something! ‘Chevron Stitch’ is not just a simple pattern…..there are seriously dozens of different chevron designs out there! Whether they are worked using a SC v. DC (or some other stitch that provides height), do you use a Cluster Stitches v. skip stitches for your decrease, do you CH v. adding stitches for your increase…..Phew! And I know im missing multiple other options that can be added into the mix!
So after looking through
all lots of different designs and not really finding what I was looking for, specifically a pattern that provided a way to square off the Chevron edging, I decided to ‘wing it’. And after several attempts I think I finally found one I am happy with!
CH in multiple of 14 + 2
1. Skip first 2 CH, DC in next stitch (counts as DC Cluster), DC in next 5 stitches, CH2, DC in next 6 stitches, skip next 2 CH’s, DC in next 6 stitches, CH2, DC in next 5, 2DC Cluster
2. CH2, Turn DC in next stitch (counts as DC Cluster), DC in next 4 stitches, (DC, CH2, DC) in CH2 space, DC in next 5 stitches, skip next 2 stitches, DC in next 5 stitches, (DC, CH2, DC) in CH2 space, DC in next 4 stitches, 2DC Cluster
Repeat row 2 until desired size is reached.
NOTE: This is an optional edging, if you like you can simply SC around the finished piece (put an extra SC in the corners, and 2SC in the CH2 spaces to keep it from curling). This 2Row Edging will help you to square off the Chevron so you have ‘flat’ edges.
Working with right side of last row facing –
Join in the top right DC Cluster with a CH2, TR in same as joining, *MTR in next stitch, DC in next, HDC in next 2 stitches, SC in next stitch, 2SC in CH2 space, SC in next stitch, HDC in next 2 stitches, DC in next stitch, MTR in next*, TR in next 2 stitches, repeat from *to* once more, TR in last stitch
Work 2SC in last TR made; continue working SC down the side to corner,
Working in Base Chain –
SC in first stitch, *SC in next stitch, HDC in next 2 stitches, DC in next stitch, MTR, in next stitch, TR in next 2 stitches, MTR in next stitch, DC in next, HDC in next 2 stitches, SC in next stitch*, 2SC in CH2 space, repeat from *to* once more
Work 2SC in skipped 2CH, continue working SC down the side to the corner.
Row2: Work 2SC in top of TR from Row1 of edging, *SC across, work 2SC in last stitch and in first stitch of next side*, repeat from *to*, twice more, SC along last side, working 2SC in last stitch. Finish off and Join
