Chevron Stitch Instructions & Diagram

You can see the diagram of this stitch below.

  • Make a vertical stitch skipping four canvas threads from bottom to top
  • Then, make two equal stitches on the right side, each one raising a canvas hole to the previous one
  • Then make the same two stitches diagonally downward (following the same logic)
  • The second row should be immediately below this one and will be a sequence of vertical stitches passing over two canvas threads. The top of this should be in the same canvas hole as the bottom of the top row.
  • Repeat step 3 and 4 as many times as necessary, always remember to alternate between long and short stitches
