Crochet Herringbone Stitch Tutorial

Here is a crochet herringbone stitch tutorial, found in these mittens and ear warmer patterns, but also in my new cardigan pattern release! It’s a classic stitch that looks great on so many different crochet projects, and one of my all time favourites. It’s quick and relaxing too once you get into it.

The Hibiscus herringbone cardigan is available here.

The grey blue yarn i’m using is James Brett Noodles Chunky – it’s so chunky and soft but doesn’t split, so perfect for practising swatches and frogging over and over! 


  • Chain (CH) any length
  • Yarn over (YO) and pull up a loop from the 3rd CH from the hook – 3 loops on hook
  • Pull the first loop through the 2nd loop – 2 loops on hook
  • YO and pull through the first loop – 2 loops on hook
