In this video tutorial, Heidi Gustad teaches you how to master the deceptively complicated herringbone stitch. The herringbone stitch is a beautiful and dense stitch that looks similar to the fabric you would use to make suits. The stitch is worked over a multiple of two stitches and a multiple of two rows. Once you know how to knit the herringbone stitch, you will be able to add wonderful texture and depth to your projects.

I love the look of herringbone, but it has always intimidated me. I'll have to try this as a scarf or something the next time I want to try something new!

Oh man, where was this tutorial when I made a herringbone stitch dishcloth recently! I struggled with that pattern, and this would have made my life so much easier!
