Herringbone stitch example

This stitch makes a nice arrow pattern across your knitting. I love how it works up on chunkier yarns like the Madelinetosh ASAP that I used to make this swatch. If you use a smaller gauge then be sure to keep your tension pretty loose as this stitch loves to stay tight on your needles. Another tip is that while In this example I show you the right and wrong side of the pattern, it works really well when you're knitting in the round. It's perfect for impressing on big, chunky cowls.
