Today’s knitting stitch from my little old timey swatchathon is Chevron Stitch, a knitted lace stitch that was particularly popular in the 1930’s.
This is a style of stitch that my Mum loved to knit, especially on the short sleeve pullovers in the style that was popular in the 40’s. (Like the Swansea sweater). I can imagine this stitch being used in the centre panel of a lace stole, or even a garter stitch version for a lace weight or chunky knit scarf. But it will always remind me of my Mum knitting short sleeved tops at a speed so fast her hands were a blur.
