Chevron Stitches are stitches using a combination of diagonal stitches capped with straight stitches. These stitches look terrific used in borders or as bands in a project.
Chevron stitches can be worked as counted stitches, or pre-marked on the fabric and worked as surface stitches. The most common variations that you will find in projects from NeedleKnowledge are the basic chevron stitch, double chevron stitch, along with variations of the laced chevron stitch.
