I first learned this stitch a couple of years ago when I created the #100daysofknitstitches. It’s called the Herringbone Twill Knit Stitch. It’s such a beautiful stitch. I’ve wanted to create a pattern for it ever since I learned it and here it is!

  • Gauge: 9 sts & 15 rows per 4” {10cm} square

Notes:

  • You can use any weight of yarn for this pattern. It’s easy to adjust.
  • CO more, or less, STS for your desired width.
  • CO in increments of 4+2
  • This is a tight stitch. You might want to go up a needle size or two to get a relaxed stitch. The yarn I used calls for a 15-17 needle and I used a 19 and I knit a little on the loose side.
