Tutorial: Herringbone Double Crochet (HBdc)

This tutorial is all about how to make the Herringbone Double Crochet.

This stitch leans in the direction you are crocheting, due to the slip stitch at the bottom, and when worked in turned rows it creates a Herringbone pattern in your crocheted fabric.

I used this stitch as the basis for my Sundae Cardigan because it has a lovely subtle texture and beautiful drape – perfect for a loose elegant cardigan. If you’d like to make the Sundae Cardigan you will be able to buy the pattern through Etsy, Ravelry, Love Crafts or the VK Store on the 5th of July 2020.

Right, so on to how to make the Herringbone Double Crochet.
