Herringbone Knitting Stitch Pattern
The Herringbone stitch is a very clasic pattern that resembles the scales of a fish. This stitch creates a thick and strong fabric, which is not reversible.
It is very easy to knit pattern that you can work on any number of stitches. It repeats 2 rows. On this example, I’ve added two stitches on the edges, but this step is optional.
Cast on your stitches to start, then, knit as follows:
The edge stitches appears between brackets.
k2tog: knit 2 together
tbl: through the back loop
p2tog: purl 2 together
|Row 1:||(k1 – edge), K2tog tbl, *slip first stitch to the right needle, knit the second stitch and the next stitch on the left needle together tbl*, repeat *, k1, (k1 – edge)|
|Row 2:||(p1 – edge), p2tog, slip first stitch to the right needle, purl the second stitch and the next stitch on the left needle together*, repeat *, p1, (p1 – edge)|
|Repeat always these 2 rows.|
