CLOSER LOOK at the Chevron Seed Stitch Pattern

The zigzags of the purls on a stockinette canvas create the Chevron pattern.

This is not a reversible pattern, meaning that the Right and Wrong sides look different. The Right side (front) has the pattern design and the Wrong side (back) has a smooth inverted texture.
