How to knit the one-row repeat Chevron stitch

In this post, you’ll learn how to knit the most amazing Chevron stitch pattern.

Actually, it’s one of those patterns that has it all…

Why is it so special?

Well, there are plenty of reasons:

Firstly, it’s a one-row repeat pattern! 

I know we had practiced other Chevron patterns in the past, but never ever have I seen one made in just one row. Until today…

Secondly, it’s reversible (identical on both sides, a feature that many knitters really appreciate).

In addition,  if the only technique you know so far is the knit stitch, this one is for you.

Honestly, it’s so easy, that the only variations we’ll do are: Knit one stitch front and back (like a double knit stitch), and knit two stitches together.

No purling, increasing, decreasing, slipping, or crossing is required 🙂


Finally, although the texture is rich, the one-row repeat Chevron stitch doesn’t curl; it lays flat no matter what.

What more could we ask for?

For all the aforementioned reasons, it’s a great pattern for blankets and scarves,  but I’m sure that a cushion or a table runner will look great too.

Ok, enough chat.

Grab your needles, and some yarn, and let’s get busy!

With my bamboo double-pointed needles, which are great for swatches, and small projects #ad


CO: Cast on

st: Stitch

RS: Right side

K: Knit

k2tog: Knit two stitches together

kfb: Knit one stitch front and back (knit the stitch, don’t take it off the left-hand needle, knit it again through the back loop, and drop both)

WS: Wrong side

BO: Bind off


The odd rows form the right side of the work.

The edge (selvage) stitches (the first and the last) will be knitted on every row.

There is a setup row (or row “0”, as I like to call it) which will be knitted just once.

CO multiples of 12 + 13 + 2 (edge/selvage) stitches; i.e.: 12 * 2 = 24 * 13 = 37 + 2 = 39 st.

Setup row: K across

Row 1: K1 (edge), K6, *k2tog, K4, kfb, K5*. Repeat from * to *, to last 8 st, ending with k2tog, K4, kfb, K1 (edge).

This last row creates the pattern. Repeat it until the desired length is reached.

When finished, BO knitwise (no matter which sides you choose).

This is the other side of the work:
