CHEVRON Chevron Foundation Row 10 bead start: String four color 1 beads, three color 2 and three color 1, putting the needle back through the 1st color 1 bead to form a circle. String 6 beads for each additional stitch to form the foundation row. String three color 3 beads, three color 1, then take the needle up through the 3 rd color 1 bead on the side the needle is setting. Pull thread taut. String three color 2 and three color 1, take the needle down through the 3 rd color 1 bead of those just added, continue alternating to the end, 10 Chevrons across. The chevrons will set between one line of color 2 beads and one line of color 3 beads. Count both sides of the chevron to be sure there are 10 “v” shapes and 10 inverted “v” shapes. Chevron Add On Rows Continue with thread from the last bead of the foundation row. String the 10 bead start, take the needle up through the first color 1 bead strung and then across through the next three color 3 beads of the foundation. String three color 1 beads, take the needle down through the 3 rd color 1 beads, previous set. String three color 2 and three color 1 beads, take the needle up through the 3rd color 1 bead strung of the last set, and continue across. The foundation row provides 3 beads for the top of this new row and requires only 3 beads added to complete that set, then 6 beads are added to create the next set. Alternate with 3 bead sets and 6 bead sets to the end. Alternate the line of beads between the chevrons, color 2 in one row and color 3 in the next. There should be a total of three color 3 lines and four color 2 lines.
