CLOSER LOOK at the Wide Chevron Zigzag 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 show off 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.
