How to Knit a Gorgeous Chevron Stitch (2 rows!)

In this tutorial, I’m sharing how to knit the easiest Chevron Lace stitch I’ve seen so far.

So, I’m happy to say that it’s totally beginner-friendly!

Many Chevron Lace patterns include double and more elaborate simple decreases, which makes the patterns more suitable for experienced knitters.

On the contrary, this one is not only a gorgeous two-row repeat pattern, but the only stitches you need to know are knit, purl, yarn over, and knit two together.

It’s pretty versatile and ideal for blankets (not only for baby blankets), throws, wraps, etc.

In fact, you can knit a single-color piece, or combine several colors; make the stripes as thin or wide as you prefer… the possibilities are endless!

Without further ado, grab your needles, and some yarn, and let’s knit together 🙂


CO: Cast on

RS: Right side of the work

st: Stitch

K: Knit

yo: Yarn over

k2tog: Knit two stitches together

P: Purl

BO: Bind off


The odd rows form the right side of the work.

The pattern includes an edge in Garter stitch of 4 st on each side.

You can add four rows in Garter stitch at the beginning, and four more at the end, to create a symmetrical design.

If this is your choice, BO knitwise after row 3 of the Garter stitch edge (WS).

CO multiples of 13 + 4 + 5.

For example: 13 * 2 = 26 + 4 = 30 + 5 = 35 st.

1º and every odd row (RS): K4, *K1, yo, K4, k2tog twice, K4, yo*. Repeat from * to *, to last 5 st, ending with K5

2º and every even row: K4, P to last 4 st, ending with K4.

These two rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.

When finished, BO after row 1 (WS), as follows:

BO 4 st knitwise, BO purlwise to last 4 st, BO 4 st knitwise.
