CAL Section 3: Wave and Chevron Crochet Stitch

Wave & Chevron Crochet Stitch

A Zig and A Zag CAL week #3

Welcome to week 3 everyone!  I hope you had as much fun with the Brick Stitch as I do when working it.  It's kind of an addicting stitch!  Thank you to all those who are sharing your progress photos with me on Facebook and in projects on Ravelry.  The colors you've chosen are all looking great!
A Zig and A Zag CAL Section #3 - Wave & Chevron stitch

This week, we'll learn the Wave & Chevron stitch.  This stitch can form a couple of different looks when switching colors on different rows.  I wanted to show a simple chevron by using a darker color on the smaller stitch rows.  If you were to continue working more rows of this stitch on a different project, you could have a really fun wavy pattern by switching colors on different rows.  

Let's get started hooking!
