Crochet Chevrons

crochet chevronsColourful Crochet Chevrons

Crochet chevrons are sometimes also referred to as ripple stitches as this stitch creates a lovely flowing pattern, or a ripple.  It is great fun to work and lends itself to the use of different contrasting colours.

Crochet chevrons look very effective when used for blankets, shawls, cushions and bags etc.

The chevrons are made by working corners at 2 repeated points in the piece. Sometimes referred to as  a hill and valley stitch this analogy makes it simpler to understand. 

The  stitch is created by basically working 2 corners repeatedly.  The top of the hill is one corner and the valley is another corner.  The top of the hill is made by increasing the stitches and the valley is made by decreasing the stitches.  These hills and valleys are repeated throughout  your work thus creating the chevrons or ripples.
