Free Chevron Photoshop Pattern

Posted August 10th, 2011 in freebies

I’ve been seeing this pattern a lot in interior design so thought I would try to recreate a pattern of it in Photoshop. This is the result:

chevron pattern 600px Free Chevron Photoshop Pattern

Mmmm juicy geometric lines with muted blues, chartreuse and rusty oranges *drools* Its basically a white zig zag line with a transparent zig zag so you can layer it with any color you want. Here is the free pattern to play around with and use in your designs. Feel free to share. Happy designing!

    Thanks so much for this! It’s just what I was looking for. I have a couple questions for you… First, how can I change the color of the pattern to a true white instead of a gray? Also, how can I resize the pattern so that it looks like your samples above without being distorted?

  2. Bexxie says:

    Hey Susan! Glad you like it :) I thought I had made the pattern white to begin with but just checked in Photoshop and you’re right, it’s slightly gray. You could easily fix this by adding a color overlay effect to your pattern layer and choose white. That should do the trick!

    As for resizing the pattern, I think what I did when I created that sample image was I changed the size by going to Image -> Image Size and made it slightly smaller. Then cropped out a chunk of it and put it on a new photoshop document. You could also resize the pattern layer but if you try to make it bigger it will become distorted because the pattern is a raster graphic not vector.

  3. Susan says:

    Hi! I am finally getting back to this (had to get some other stuff done first) and I’m having trouble with changing the pattern to white. When I add a color overlay, it makes the whole image white instead of just the pattern. I must be missing a step or something. Can you help? :)

    • Bexxie says:

      Hi Susan! This is what I did:

      - I created a layer and filled it with a background color
      - Then I created another layer for my pattern and went to Edit -> Fill, selected “pattern” from the drop down menu and chose the chevron pattern.
      - Now that my pattern is on it’s own layer, I added a color overlay effect on that layer and chose white.

      Hope that helps!

  4. Susan says:

    Oh my gosh! That did it! I’ve been trying to figure out how to change the color on a pattern forever! I’ve been doing it way wrong. Thank you so much!!!

  5. Bexxie says:

    No problem! Happy to help :)

  6. Dawn says:

    love this pattern! thank you so much :) just wondering… is there a way for me to make this a 3 color pattern? thanks again ~ this is fantastic!

    • Bexxie says:

      Hey Dawn! Glad you like it :) As-is, the pattern is only two colors – white zig zag with a transparent zig zag so you can layer with whatever color you want. I suppose if you wanted a 3 color pattern, you could add another layer with the third color and mask out a zig zag on the pattern layer and then recreate your own pattern. Hope that makes sense!

  7. Shelly says:

    I love this chevron pattern!! Thank you so much!! But I know very little in photoshop – I mainly use it for editing photographs. I’m having troubles getting this patten in a document – can you walk me through how to do it?? Thanks,
    Shelly

    • Bexxie says:

      Hi Shelly,

      You want to create two layers. One for the pattern and one for the color you want the other zig zag to be. So basically fill the layer with the color you want and then on the pattern layer, go to edit -> fill and choose pattern from the drop down. You can then import the chevron pattern from there. Hope that helps explain it a bit more!

    Thanks so much! I just love Chevron! :)

  11. Aline says:

    Hi, I downloaded this but it didn’t even open. I have a Mac. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    • Bexxie says:

      Hi Aline!

      Did you try loading it up in Photoshop? You can load a pattern either by using the Pattern Overlay layer style or by going to Edit -> Fill -> Use pattern and then loading up your pattern there. Hope this helps!

      • Grace says:

        I have a Mac too and the pattern didn’t load. I tried both of your methods. I have CS4 and it doesn’t seem to “find” the file at all.

  12. Brenda says:

    Thank you so much!!!

  13. S says:

    Youre a savior. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  14. Emily says:

    Hi! I have a very old version (7.0) of photoshop. Is there a way I can convert the file to make it compatible? This is the best chevron pattern!

  16. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just
    do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
    and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.

    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  17. Nki says:

    Hi,

    I have Photoshop CS5 and I was able to download the pattern yet when I try to open it in Photoshop, nothing happens. I followed your other tips for opening by loading the pattern by using the Pattern Overlay layer style and also by going to Edit -> Fill -> Use pattern and then loading the pattern from there. I can see the Chevron pattern in the “use pattern” box but it won’t open. My background remains transparent. Should I have certain settings in place before I try to open it? (i.e. background color, dpi, etc…)

    I appreciate any help you can give.

    Thanks,
    Nki

  18. Nki says:

    I figured it out!! I had to first use my rectangular tool to select the canvas, and pick a color other than white for my background. After that, I was able to use the Edit -> Fill -> Use pattern step and it filled the page with the chevron pattern of the color I chose.

    Thank you so much!

  19. Danielle says:

    Hello!

    I downloaded this chevron.zip file and I loaded the pattern into Photoshop CS6….the problem I’m finding is that I don’t see this zig zag pattern anywhere, but I do see a lot of different patterns including wood, flowers, polka dots, etc. I was just looking for this specific pattern, instead of a pattern package(I’m still not quite sure how I got 30+ patterns loaded into my Photoshop). Has the file been changed or is it an issue with CS6?

    Thanks!

    Danielle
