I am so in love with the double herringbone stitch and I am so excited to share this tutorial with my readers.
The double herringbone is a great stitch to add to your list of stitches to use in a project.
The double herringbone looks best in a larger section where you can really see the slanting of the stitches to create that herringbone look.
The double herringbone gives you that extra bit of height and a little more drape than a standard double crochet.
I would love to see what projects you crochet with this stitch.

Herringbone Double Crochet Stitch Written Instructions:
Any number of stitches plus 2 for the foundation.
herringbone double crochet – yo, insert hook into st, yo and pull through the st and the first loop on your hook, yo and pull through one more loop, yo and pull through the last two loops on your hook.
Row 1: 1 hbdc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch to end, turn.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as 1 hbdc), 1 hbdc in next st and each st to end, 1 hddc in turning ch, turn.
Row 3+: Repeat Row 2.
Work the rows in twos so that you get the full herringbone effect in your final project.
Pay attention and make sure you don’t lapse back into a regular double crochet stitch.
