The Raised Herringbone stitch features a lot of texture in its raised crossed post stitches. It is such a satisfying stitch to work!
If you are looking for texture, then this stitch is sure to be a favourite. I have used a version of this stitch in the Into the Bush Beanie Crochet Pattern and the Into the Bush Cowl Crochet Pattern. I think it is beautiful!
This stitch is a two row repeat and the texture is created by front post crossed double treble stitches. The texture in this stitch creates a zig zag design across your fabric. The stitch only appears on one side and would look wonderful in a variety of projects, not only hats and cowls, but blankets, washcloths and cardigans as well! I cannot wait to see what you make with it!
