I'm working on a pattern that calls for the guage swatch to be done in "chevron pat" but there's no distinction on what that IS in the pattern :(  Is there a standard chevron pattern that I should know about?

The only information I can find thus far is one that said it's done in a pattern of eight stitches.  Is there a common one, or am I missing something?

Hi toyelf,

What is your pattern name?  or a link to it. 

There are many patterns called chevron as you can see here, they are all different but go by that name. 

http://www.yarn.com/webs-knitting-patterns-free-tahki-yarns/webs-free-knitting-patterns-tahki-bellevue-tunic/  (8 stitch-same as below)

http://knitting.about.com/od/stitchglossary/g/chevron.htm  (8 stitch)

http://knitting.about.com/od/stitchglossary/g/chevron.htm  (6 stitch)

http://www.knittingonthenet.com/stitches/chevronsingle.htm (8 stitch)

So it would be good to show a picture of your project or where to see it.  I posted a few links to some chevron(s) so you can see for reference. 

There must be a guide to it somewhere in your pattern, like on a page that continues your pattern?  Or if you are using a book or magazine, if not IN the pattern, then on another page of book or magazine.  Did you check other pages if there some? 

 And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen.   Ex. 35:25

hi toyelf,

did you notice that your number of posts don't change?  It still shows "8" even though you posted a few times more?
