Using basic, beginner-level stitches, Heidi Gustad was able to create texture to an otherwise simple knitting pattern for beginners. With only knit and purl stitch used to make the raised, chevron stripes, knitters at any level can create a fun pattern. This is a great tutorial to add embellishment to scarves, knit bags, or handmade gifts of any kind. While knitting chevron stripes, be sure to closely follow the pattern you're using to be sure the stripes line up with each other before moving ahead.
