A chevron stitch is a zig-zag-shaped stitch done between two parallel lines. The lines can be straight and also curved.
Tiny horizontal straight stitches are connected with diagonal lines to make this beautiful stitch. You can 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.
