The Herringbone stitch is a beautiful adaptation of the treble crochet (US Double crochet) that gives a great dense texture suitable for a range of projects. I love this stitch because it’s EASY yet gives a stunning result.

Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guide’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions. You can find my EBook HERE.
