“By strategically placing increases and decreases you can make interesting chevron patterns! Bias or diagonal fabrics can be created by adding a stitch at one end of the work and taking a stitch away at the other. Adding at the beginning and removing at the end of all right-side rows makes the work slant to the right, while the converse makes fabric which slants to the left. What happens if we set these two strips side by side with their decrease ends together?”
