Swatch of Diagonal Chevron Zigzag Knit Stitch Pattern by Studio Knit with Free Pattern and Knitting Chart

This Chevron Zigzag Stitch Pattern has a bold graphic design. With this 16-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern, an intricate pattern emerges. Since this is a reversible pattern that easily lies flat, I think it’s a great knit stitch pattern to knit up an elegant scarf for both men and women. This knitting project, also called Rib and Welt Diagonals, is an easy level project, perfect for everyone who has completed my Absolute Beginner Knitting Series

CLOSER LOOK at the Chevron Zigzag Stitch Pattern

Let’s take a close look at our Chevron Zigzag Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls are knitted together to make this graphic and dynamic pattern. You can see that it tends to lean a bit toward the left from the right side. Your piece straightens out as you continue knitting its length and/or do some light blocking.

REVERSIBLE PATTERN

The Chevron Zigzag Stitch stitch is a reversible pattern, meaning that both sides of your work, the Right and Wrong sides, are identical.
