A Craft Trend of 2012: The Chevron Pattern

Have you seen this pattern before? I don’t know about you, but I have been seeing this all over the place. I have seen in on several craft and interior sites, and just the other day I even saw it in Target. The name of this pattern is called, Chevron. The Chevron pattern is definitely one of the hot trends in crafting for 2012. Here is a little bit of information about the Chevron patter. It is an inverted V-shaped pattern. This pattern has been around for a long time. The chevron occurs in early art including designs on pottery and rock carvings. Early examples of this pattern can be traced all the way back to 1800 BC. I guess it’s true that trends always find a way to resurface. Below are some examples of the Chevron pattern used in crafts/DIY projects, as well as home decor. We here at Plaid have several projects in the works, that incorporate this pattern. Be on the lookout for those soon. Have you created any recent project using the Chevron pattern?
