This week on Stitch School I am going to show you how to make the fantastic Peephole Chevron Stitch, which creates a chevron style fabric but with eyelets for a lacy look. This gives the fabric a gorgeous drape, making it ideal for blankets and scarves.

Standard Chevron is made by placing increases and decreases in the correct places, this variation is no different, we will be working the increases and decreases in a more open style!


I’m using the wonderful Cascade 220 yarn and a 4.50mm crochet hook.  This tutorial uses UK crochet terminology.

The stitch is worked on multiple of 10 ch, plus 3 ch for the foundation row.

For my sample, I’ve chained 23.

1: 1 tr into 4th ch from hook, 1 tr in next 3 ch.

Repeat row 2 until you reach the desired length.

Why not try working the chevron in stripes, just change colour every row!

    What is the weight of the yarn you are using please? I’m an expat living in Spain, we don’t have double knitting here and they use US terminology and as I learned to Crochet over here that is what I know! My favourite colour is yellow but I’ve never thought of putting it with grey, it looks very good, I usually team it with blue or black!!

    Wow thank you so much for this information. I have been racking my brain trying to figure out how to do this pattern. I’m slightly new to crocheting. I learned a little in my 20s from my mother and then being a nurse and having 2 daughters I had no time. Now that my beautiful cousin passed I have taken on crocheting again inspired by her. She was a wiz at crocheting! Thank you again the Chevron pattern is so beautiful. I will be giving it a try very very soon.
