Happy Tuesday my fellow crafters!


There's no such a thing as too many homemade crocheted decorations, am I right!

They look so precious, thanks to the beautiful herringbone stitch that really adds a special touch to the project!

Herringbone Stitch

The herringbone single crochet stitch is a two-row repeat stitch. When working with this stitch, you will repeat rows 1 and 2 to create the herringbone texture.

Right Side - Ch 1 (turning chain, do not count as a stitch). Work single crochet in first stitch from the front to back.

To work a next stitch, insert the hook into left strand of the previous stitch (from right to left) and then insert the hook into the next stitch working from front to back. Yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all three loops on the hook. Work in the same manner to the end of the row.

Wrong Side - Bring working yarn to the front of your work (side closest to you). Ch 1 (turning chain, do not count as a stitch). Work single crochet in first stitch from the back to the front. To work a next stitch, insert the hook into left strand of the previous stitch (from right to left) and then insert the hook into the next stitch working from back to front. Yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all three loops on the hook. Work in the same manner to the end of the row.
