I came across the herringbone stitch while browsing Pinterest one day.
It's a fairly easy stitch but it's rather time consuming. You can just whip along with it like with other stitches. I have to stop and make sure I'm pulling through correctly.It looks really pretty but I don't think I'll be adding this to the shop list soon.
Took me about 4 hours to make a dishcloth that would normally only take me about an hour!
Have you tried the herringbone stitch? How did you find it?
