The Herringbone Double Crochet stitch tutorial features a beautiful variation of the basic double crochet stitch. 

It creates a distinctive v-shaped pattern, which gives it such a beautiful look. 

You can find the Herringbone Double crochet stitch featured in this throw pillow pattern & also this women’s cardigan pattern

I’ve also included a way for you to grab the printable version in a bundle, more details about that further down.
