Similar to the Embossed Leaf Pattern, it is a great choice to create textured scarves, pillow covers, and blankets with its bold, reversible design.

CLOSER LOOK at the Cut Diagonals Stitch Pattern

This is a reversible pattern, meaning that both sides of your work, the Right and Wrong sides, are identical. As a result, this is a great choice to create knitted items that display both sides of your work, like scarves or blankets. Find similar Zigzag and Chevron designs with the Chevron Seed, Diagonal Chevron Zigzag, and Parallelogram Stitches.
