I love this gorgeous variation on the class chevron crochet stitch pattern. This is called the peephole chevron crochet stitch and I am excited to show you how to crochet it. It is a lacy version of the chevron and super easy. So, this is a great beginner chevron stitch pattern too.
I ran across this stitch as I was looking for something a little more open and flowing than the traditional chevron. Once I started it, I just fell in love with the stitch. It is so easy, so it makes a great one to work while watching TV or relaxing after a long day.

Peephole Chevron Crochet Stitch Video Tutorial:
This is broken into two videos so you can work with a shorter clip! The first video is the chain and row 1 and the second video is row 2.
- Size up or down by keeping the beginning stitch count in mind -Multiples of 10 stitches, plus 3 for the foundation chain.
- Always end with 5 dc stitches (2 dc in the last) and start with a chain 3 and then 4 dc stitches (1 in same stitch as the ch 3).
This will make sure that your pattern stays straight on the ends.
- Pull your yarn a bit tighter when skipping the bottom two stitches to keep the peephole from getting too large.
- This is a great stitch to block to show off your work in a lighter weight yarn and for bulkier or more textured yarns, you can choose to block or not.
