Loom Knit The Chevron Stitch

I like to find and try new stitches. The latest stitch I have found is the chevron stitch/pattern . The chevron stitch is a stitch you will recognize if you crochet.  The video was uploaded by nickandsal001. In the video the person is using the wood type loom but you can use the knifty knitter flat or round looms to do the chevron stitch. The Chevron stitch gives you project a really nice look. The stitch really stands out when you use different colors in your project as the wavy look is really evident. The double stockinette stitch is being used in the video. To get the same pattern on both sides of your loom knitted project.

The instructor does a good job in the video demonstrating how to get the chevron stitch so I will not go in to any more detail. It is a two-part video. The uploader did not want the video to be embedded so to view the  videos  I have included links to both parts 1 and 2 in this post. I like to give credit where credit is due so if anyone happens to catch the name of the instructor drop a line so credit can be given.

The following is a pattern to use to knit the Chevron stitch
