Chevron stitch requires a foundation chain that is a multiple of 13 plus 2. Start the first row with two single crochet stitches in the second chain from the hook. Create the chevron pattern by stitching a single crochet in the next five chains, skipping two chains, making a single crochet in the following five chains and then three single crochet stitches in the next chain. Repeat the pattern until one stitch remains. Make two single crochet in this chain.
Turn the work. Start row two with one chain stitch followed by two single crochet in the first single crochet of the preceding row. Create the pattern by stitching a single crochet in the next five single crochets, skipping two single crochets, making a single crochet in the following five single crochets and then three single crochet stitches in the next single crochet. Repeat until one single crochet remains, and work two single crochets into this stitch. Continue by turning the work and repeating row two.
Chevron stitch is also known as ripple stitch. It is often used to make afghans, blankets and scarves. Using blocks of different color yarn highlights the chevron pattern, although some patterns use a single color of yarn.
