Knit Stitch Pattern Saturday

Today’s knit stitch pattern is called the Garter Striped Chevron. I found this stitch pattern in the Knit Stitch Dictionary by Debbie Tomkies.

Garter Striped Chevron Stitch Swatch

To create this pattern, I chose 2 skeins of Cascade 220 that were in my stash. I cast on 2 repeats of the pattern on U.S. Size 7 knitting needles. The stitch count for this pattern is multiples of 18 stitches plus one additional stitch so I cast on a total of 37 stitches. The width of this piece currently measures 7 inches.

I’m really excited about this stitch pattern. It is a 4 row repeat changing colors after 2 rows. I found that I had the pattern memorized after just 4 repeats and this really allowed for a pleasant knitting experience as I got into the flow of knitting.

I see endless possibilities for using this stitch pattern. First one being an ideal pattern for a baby blanket. I’m off to go through my stash and find 2 colors that will work well for the blanket.

I’ll publish the pattern sometime in the future as I complete the blanket and write the pattern. In the mean time, if you are looking for a Chevron stitch baby blanket, visit this blog post. There is a free pattern for a two color chevron baby blanket.

So what would you create using this stitch pattern? Let me know your ideas and I’ll see if I can incorporate them into one of my pattern designs.
