Herringbone Double Crochet
Besides it’s lovely texture, another thing that makes this stitch unique is that it is reversible. It doesn’t matter what side you use, both will look the same! Use this stitch to make scarves, blankets, placemats, dishcloths and more. You can use this stitch anywhere you’d use a normal double crochet stitch – just swap it out for the Herringbone Double Crochet.
I also included a video tutorial for my visual learners
- any worsted weight yarn
- a 5.00mm crochet hook
WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE HERRINGBONE DOUBLE CROCHET (HBDC):
- make any number of chains in multiples of 1 + 1
- yarn over, insert your hook into the 3rd chain from the hook
- yarn over, pull up a loop and immediately pull through the first loop on your hook (you now have 2 loops left on your hook)
- yarn over, pull through 1 loop
- yarn over, pull through the remaining 2 loops on your hook.
And that’s it! You’ve made your first HBDC. Continue to make one HBDC stitch in each chain all the way across.
