Reversible Shadow Chevron knitting stitch pattern

In today’s tutorial, you’ll learn a gorgeous knitting stitch: The Reversible Shadow Chevron; an elegant pattern, full of advantages:

Identical on both sides, it doesn’t curl, it has a lovely texture to it, and unisex; the perfect shadow knitting option for scarves, infinite cowls, blankets, or even a table runner.

The Reversible Shadow Chevron is so easy to knit; if you can knit and purl, you can do it! There are no extra techniques needed (no increases, decreases, slipped stitches, etc.).

Let’s get started!


CO: Cast on

st: Stitch

K: Knit

P: Purl

BO: Bind off

This swatch was knitted using this beautiful 100% cotton yarn (really soft, not too shiny… just perfect!)
