The Eyelet Chevron is a classic knit stitch that produces a zigzag eyelet pattern. The right-slanting stitches are produced by knitting two stitches together, while the left-slanting stitches are made by slipping a stitch, knitting the next stitch and then passing the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch. There is a double decrease where the left and right slanting stitches meet to finish the pattern. The eyelets are formed using a simple yarn over.

The Eyelet Chevron pattern is on a stockinette stitch background which means that the edges of the fabric will curl so you may want to avoid using it as a border stitch.  It would look great in a sweater, hat or a blanket (such as a baby blanket with a seed stitch border).
