Today’s knit stitch pattern has been in the works for about a month. It is a variation of the Fancy Chevron stitch pattern that I posted on January 28, 2017. When I knit that swatch, I was fascinated by the seed stitch chevron and knew that I wanted a variation to use in a new project. I’ve spent many hours pulling out the piece of the pattern that I wanted to use. So here is the result. This is the seed stitch chevron pattern with one and one half repeats for a total of 33 stitches.
I knit this on U.S. Size 8 knitting needles with worsted weight yarn.
Getting these 22 rows done was quite a challenge. Here’s a photo of my graph paper and notes.
Since the original pattern does not have the solid stockinette sections, it was a challenge to pull out the chevron. As you see from my graph paper sketch, there are lots of notes. Then I wrote each row as I knit it. The wrong side rows were particularly challenging but I made it after a few errors.
Now I need to type up those hand written instructions before I can’t understand what I wrote. Sometimes I leave the notes too long and then they don’t make sense to me when I try to knit the pattern a second time.
I’m planning a scarf with this pattern. I need to decide on a border and how many stockinette stitch rows between the chevrons. Any thoughts or suggestions?
