Crocheting is one of the most relaxing things in the world. There’s nothing like listening to some calming music and making something by hand.
One of my favorite stitches is the chevron stitch. It’s actually pretty easy to achieve, and whatever you want to make with it will turn out beautiful.
Wanna give it a shot? Here’s how to do it.
What You Need:
- Crochet hook
- Ball of yarn.
To begin the stitch, do the foundation chain in multiples of 12 + 2 and start on Row 1.
For the first row, begin with 2 single crochets into the 2nd stitch from the hook. Pull the yarn through, and do 1 single crochet into the next 5 stitches.
Skip 1 chain stitch and single crochet again into the next 5 chain stitches. To finish Row 1, we will single crochet 3 times into the next stitch.

Repeat the sequence for Row 1 until you reach the last stitch in the row. When you reach the last stitch in the row, rather than doing 3 single crochets, do 2. Do 1 chain and turn the hook.
For row 2, do 2 single crochets into the next stitch and start again with the 1 single crochet into the next 5 stitches.
Skip the next 2 stitches and do 5 single crochets into the next 5 stitches. Finish with the 3 single crochets into the next stitch. Repeat the sequence until you reach the last stitch in the row.
Once you reach the last stitch in the row, do 2 single crochets instead of 3. Chain 1 and turn your work.
Repeat Row 2 until you reach your desired length and you’re done.
