This Diagonal Chevron Zigzag Knit Stitch Pattern has a really bold graphic design. With this 12 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 is an easy level project, perfect for everyone who has completed my Absolute Beginner Knitting Series. What will you create with your new Diagonal Chevron Zigzag Knit Stitch?
CLOSER LOOK at the Diagonal Chevron Zigzag Knit Stitch Pattern
Let’s take a close look at our Diagonal Chevron Zigzag Knit 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.
