I recently wrote a pattern featuring the herringbone single crochet stitch, so I thought I would write a tutorial for those who have never worked this stitch.

Herringbone Single Crochet Stitch Tutorial (Hsc)

The herringbone single crochet stitch is quite simple. You will begin your row with a normal single crochet. 

  • Insert your hook through the left leg of the st you just worked (marked with a yarn needle in Figure 1). 
  • Next, insert your hook through the top loops of the next stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop (see Figure 2). 
  • Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops. You have now completed a herringbone single crochet stitch (see Figure 3).

If you continue across and work all of your rows with the herringbone single crochet stitch, the slanted herringbone pattern will only appear on every other row, and both your sides will look the same (see Figure 4).

If you would like the herringbone stitch to look more consistent, then you will have to alternate between herringbone single crochet and reverse herringbone single crochet. 

Reverse Herringbone Single Crochet Stitch Tutorial (Rhsc) 

The reverse herringbone single crochet stitch is used on the wrong side of your project, so that the herringbone stitch pattern shows up on the right side. 

  • Begin with an inverted single crochet stitch. Insert your hook into the first stitch from the back to the front (see Figure 1). Then, work the single crochet stitch as normal (see Figure 2). 
  • Insert your hook through the left leg of the previous stitch on the back of your work (marked with a yarn needle in Figure 3). 
  • Insert your hook from the back to the front through the top loops of the next stitch (see Figure 4). 
  • Yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, then pull through all three loops. You have now completed a reverse herringbone single crochet (see Figure 5). 
  • When you alternate between herringbone single crochet and reverse herringbone single crochet, the herringbone stitch pattern will appear consistently on one side of your work (see Figure 6).
