The chevron stitch is a very traditional crochet stitch and this pattern does it with style. It provides a nice smooth up and down wave. There is one tricky stitch that some of you may not be familiar with and that is the double crochet three together or dc3tog. No need to worry if you are unfamiliar with it because the instructions below will explain it step by step. Make note that it is important to chain loosely when you begin so the edge won't be tighter than the rest of your work.
