How to do the Herringbone Stitch

Learning how to do the herringbone stitch can produce some very pretty results.  It’s a nice decorative stitch to add to borders and can even be combined with a second row of herringbone stitches to make a double herringbone.  With a second color of thread, this can produce some very pretty results.

How to do the Herringbone Stitch

To do a herringbone stitch, you start with two parallel lines.  Bring your needle across to the top line and take your needle back down.  Bring your needle a stitch length to the left and bring it back up through the fabric.  Then take the needle down across to the other line.  It’s best to learn watching my video tutorial below.
