Gauge

22 stitches for 11 rows measures 4″; each chevron measures about 4″ across

Skill Level

Intermediate. It’s helpful to have some experience in Tunisian crochet since being able to “read the stitches” makes this easier.

Notes

Project is made flat. It’s helpful, although not crucial, to have a pliable cord on the hook so the loops can be better distributed. There may be slight curling at the bottom which was easily removed with a light blocking.

Stitch Multiple

To change the size of your project, chain a multiple of 20, plus 19.
