A Chevron stitch is worked on 2 horizontal lines and creates a zig-zag shape between them. This is an interesting stitch that can be used for fillings. Parallel rows of chevron stitches add beautiful texture to the filled form. Furthermore, this stitch allows you to experiment widely with colors and patterns. For example, you can use a different color for each row of the chevron stitch. Also, you can change the position of the stitches in every second row to create a totally different pattern. Besides that, chevron stitch can be worked in curved shapes as well as straight lines.
