This Faux Chevron Pattern Is Making Waves

At first glance, this stitch pattern doesn’t scream chevron — it’s missing the telltale peaks and valleys running along the bottom edge — but it still has the feel of a classic chevron. Clever color changes create the gentle ripple pattern. Go high contrast with your colors to make the pattern pop.
