How to knit herringbone stitch

In this DROPS video we show how to knit the herringbone stitch.

This pretty herringbone texture is not as complicated as it may look. The classic texture is perfect for patterns like scarfs, neck warmers, bags and interior design. The fabric gets dense and you work on a larger needle than recommended for the yarn size.

In this video we knit with DROPS Merino Extra Fine, a DK weight in yarn group B, and we are using a size 13 (9 mm ) needle.
