Today I am sharing one of my favorite vintage knitting stitches, a Chevron Seed Stitch Pattern!
With a series of knits and purls, we will create this a seed stitch graphic Chevron pattern.
Step-by-Step Knitting Instructions, complete with free video tutorial, of the Chevron Knit Stitch Pattern!
Cast on in multiples of 8. I have cast on 24 stitches. And we will be repeating four simple rows to create the entire Chevron pattern.
On Row 1, we begin by just purling one stitch. I’m switching to my blue yarn. We purl one, bring the yarn around, and it’s time to knit. We knit three stitches. So, K3 is knitting three stitches. And row one is really simple because then we just purl one again and knit three again. this will create the eight stitches total and you just repeat this all the way down the row of your entire piece.
Now, on Row 2, we begin knitting one, and then we are going to purl five, finishing our series of eight, with one knit stitch right here and one purl stitch. And again, just repeat this series of eight stitches until you reach the end of your row.
Okay, it’s Row 3 already! So, we will knit two, and then we will purl one. Next we are going to knit three stitches, and for the final two, it is simply purl one and knit one. Purl one, and knit one.
So, you may have noticed that this pattern is NOT easily memorized, so I am leaving the instructions in the description below.
Here we are! This is the final row. Row 4. And we begin by purling two, and then we are going to knit one, we are going to purl one, knit one again, and purl three. And that’s it.
And keep knitting these four rows in the Chevron Seed Stitch until your piece is the length you desire.
