The Herringbone Twill Stitch
The Herringbone Twill Stitch uses Slip Stitches to create a side-to-side zigzag pattern than produces a very firm fabric.
The stitch gives a very distinct and very firm pattern, particularly useful for projects (or areas of projects) that you do not want a lot of stretch or give.
The effect is created by slipping stitches knitwise in a series of progressively moving four stitch repeats, offset with a couple of knit (or purl) stitches to create the overall effect.
Looking to get started, well lets move on to the instructions...
Cast on any multiple of four stitches for your project.
