Pinterest has been overflowing with chevron patterns lately, not that I’m complaining. I love the trend! It’s a modern, fresh take on design, so why not apply it to a knitting pattern as well?

Turns out we’re in luck! Quick Knits has a Chevron Cuddler pattern for a a knit throw on pages 66–67. I thought I’d mix up the color scheme and knit a swatch of the stitch pattern with a white background and lilac stripes to show you the different color possibilities you can try with this easy pattern.

Whether you’re an experienced knitter or more of a beginner, you’ll enjoy knitting this fun pattern. It’s worked in multiples of 11 stitches. Beyond basic knit and purl stitches, you’ll need to know how to k2tog (knit 2 together), k1f&b (knit into the front and back of the same stitch), and ssk (slip 1 knitwise, slip 1 knitwise, knit the 2 slipped stitches together through back loops).

If those terms are unfamiliar to you, don’t be thrown off. These are easy techniques to learn, and you’ll use them again and again in future projects. This pattern is a great starting point for mastering these increase and decrease stitches. And besides, it’s always a bit more fun learning a new technique when you are working them into a fabulous, new design!

You could also use this stitch pattern for a decorative pillow or a scarf if you prefer. Just knit up a swatch, measure out your gauge, and calculate how wide you want your final project to be. Then you’re on your way!

For those of you who love to crochet, check out the Chevron Dreams Cowl from the Winter Issue of Love of Crochet. It’s another easy pattern that’s a ton of fun to make!

    I have never knitted the chevron knit stitch pattern and would like to
    do a blanket using the above chevron pattern; the white background and
    blue stripes. Is it possible to get a pattern for a blanket emailed to me using
    this stitch pattern?

      Hi Barbara, and thank you so much for your interest in this fun stitch pattern! Unfortunately, we do not have a free pattern available featuring this particular chevron design. However, we do have an article featuring another knit chevron stitch pattern available for free. I’ve included the link below for your convenience. Cast on a multiple of 16+1, repeat [k1, yo, k6, sl2-k1-psso, k6, yo] to the last stitch, then knit the last stitch. Enjoy!
