Chevron Stripes Dishcloth
I have used my chevron stripes dishcloth for inspiration many times. It’s a perfect stitch pattern to use as a foundation or starting point to a fabulous design. I also have found it to be an excellent unisex stitch pattern. My husband actually does the dishes more often than I do. So last Christmas I knitted him a Chevron Stripes dishcloth for his Stocking worked up in his favorite color. I also believe it’s a great stitch pattern choice, for both guys and gals, when designing scarves, sweaters, and afghans; the choices are endless.
I like this stitch pattern so much that I did a Google search for its origin. Among other things, the chevron stripe is used as a badge or insignia in the military and for police uniforms to indicate rank or length of service. I myself, come from a very long line of military men. In 2017 I worked up a long scarf for a friend using the Chevron Stripes stitch pattern thanking him for his service. He was very appreciative.
Materials I used:
Lily/Sugar’n Cream. Color #01699/Tangerine.
Size US6 (4mm) knitting needles.
18sts/4″ in the Chevron Stripes stitch pattern. To encourage you to go beyond the dishcloth; I’ve included the pattern repeat.
♥ As are all my knitting patterns; this pattern has been test knit twice and both professionally copy and tech edited for accuracy.
