Day 11: How to Knit the Chevron Stripes Stitch {31 Days of Knitting Series}

Today is Day of our 31 Days of Knitting Challenge. I think this is my favorite stitch so far. It’s super cute and really fast and easy to knit. It’s called the chevron stripes stitch and it’s done by alternating purl and knit stitches to give an embossed chevron stripe to your knitting!
