Flame Chevron

Here’s a photo of a swatch I made this summer after reading “Designing Knitwear” by Deborah Newton. One chapter in the book talks about getting ideas from various fashions eras. The section on flapper fashion showed a swatch of an interesting lace design but didn’t mention how to make it or what it is called. I search through various books and finally found it in “A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns” by Barbara Walker. It’s called Flame Chevron. My version is made out of Cotton Classic by Tahki. I think it would make an interesting tank top like this one from Bouton d’ Or, if knit in a lighter weight cotton. Tahki comes in some great colors but it’s just a little too heavy for my taste.

Update: Here’s a free pattern that uses this stitch. Thanks to Juliet for finding this link.

  1. I have been trying to make 8817-4, Crystal Palace Yarns, Italian Tee Shirt using Flame chevron. There seems to be errors in pattern. Has anyone used this pattern with success.

  2. Hello Marlene,
    I knitted this swatch from directions in Barbara Walker’s book and haven’t checked to see if the one in Crystal Palace Yarns has a mistake.
