A double chevron stitch is a composite stitch made from two zig-zag-shaped chevron stitches done between two parallel lines, one above the other.
Two lines of the chevron stitch are made on the same line, one above the other. One stitch has a starting point at the bottom line and the other – at the top line.
You can embroider double Chevron stitch in one color or two contrasting colors. Use this stitch as an outline stitch, border stitch, or filling stitch.
The distance between parallel lines and the diagonal stitches’ angle will define the stitches’ size and density.
