There are many different forms of the Chevron Stitch out there. In some cases it is called the Ripple Stitch. In today’s crochet picture tutorial we are going to go over how to crochet a simple Chevron Stitch as well as how to work with multiples, resulting in the pattern repeat. There is one special stitch we’re going to be using and that is the double crochet 3 together. It can be a little tricky, but don’t worry. I’ve included a picture tutorial for the simple chevron stitch that will help you along the way.
After taking a poll in the Crochet’dy Bunch Facebook Group, I noticed that some of my ladies needed some guidance using the Chevron Stitch. I know they’re not the only ones and that’s what I created this simple crochet tutorial with pictures included. I love my new Facebook group because I now know exactly the type of content I need to produce. If you want me to create a tutorial or pattern just for you, come join the Facebook group and let me know what you’re struggling with! We would love to have you.
The Foundation Row
As I said before, there are many different forms of the Chevron Stitch. Because of this, a lot of people get confused on how to crochet it the right way. The most important thing you need to know about this simple Chevron Stitch is that you will have to chain in multiples of 10 + 1, plus 3 for the foundation row. This sounds confusing, but I will explain why in the next paragraph. The reason why we have to chain in multiples is to ensure that we have the correct number to form the Chevron pattern repeat.
To crochet this simple Chevron Stitch, you will need to chain in multiples of 10 until you reach your desired length. Once you’re satisfied, add those four chains to the end. That’s it! It really is as simple as that. If that still confuses you, work along with the picture tutorial below and you’ll start to understand.
Without further adieu, let’s get to the simple Chevron Stitch Crochet Tutorial!
Simple Chevron Stitch Crochet Tutorial
- Ch(s) – Chain(s)
- Dc – Double crochet
- Yo – Yarn over
- Sk – Skip
- Rep – Repeat
- Dc3tog – *Yo, insert your hook into the next st, yo, pull up a loop, yo pull through two loops. Rep * two more times. Yo pull through all four loops.
- 10 sts + 1, plus 3 for the foundation chain
For this example, we’re going to Chain 24. (20 + 1, plus 3 = 24)
Row 1: Dc into the fourth chain from the hook (3 chs skipped counts as dc), *1 dc in each of the next 3ch, dc3tog over next 3ch, 1 dc in each of next 3 ch**, 3dc in next ch; rep from * to end, ending last rep at **, 2 dc in last ch, turn.
You should have 31 stitches including the chain 3 at the beginning of the row
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), 1 dc in first dc, *1 dc in each of the next 3dc, dc3tog over next 3dc, 1 dc in each of next 3dc, 3dc in next dc; rep from * ending last rep with 2dc in top of ch 3 from previous round, turn.
Repeat Row 2 until you feel comfortable with your new set of Chevron skills!
After working up the Chevron Stitch pattern repeat for a few rows, this is what your work will start to look like. If you’re edges are looking wonky, count to make sure you have 31 stitches (including that chain 3 at the beginning of the row) in each row. Another way you can make sure you’re on the right track is by noticing that your 3dc increase will always be in the middle dc of the 3dc increase from the previous round.
As I stated above, there are many different forms of the Chevron Stitch, but I believe this one to be the simplest pattern repeat to follow. In today’s crochet picture tutorial we learned how to work with multiples, resulting in the pattern repeat for this simple Chevron Stitch. I hope this picture tutorial for the simple Chevron Stitch was clear enough for you to take on a new project!
