Chevron Stitch belongs to Herringbone stitch family, the needle movements for both the stitches are same. Chevron is also done in between two parallel lines.
Let us see the stitch process,
Just for understanding, I have marked parallel dotted lines and three points a,b, c, the points a and b should be equal distant from the point c.
Step 1 : Take the needle out through a point at the second line.
Step 2 : Insert the needle at the point c ( center point), ( i.e a slanting stitch is formed).
Step 3 : Take the needle out through the point a.
Step 4 : Insert the needle at the point b, and take it out through the point c.
Keep in Mind : The working thread should be above the needle.
Step 5 : Insert the needle at a point on the second line ( see the above fig.)
repeat the same process at the second line also.
You will get a beautiful line of Chevron stitch..
The back side of the stitch ll look somewhat like this..
try this out, it is really easy…
happy stitching !
