Pattern repeat

1 – WS, work all stitches from the back

  • HSC(WS) in each stitch across

2 – RS, work all stitches from the front

  • CH 1. SC in 1st stitch.
  • HSC(RS) in each stitch across

  • Stitches are only worked from one side i.e. RS
  • The Herringbone’s plait like pattern also only appear on the RS
  • The stitches get pulled together as we hook each new stitch to the previous, hence create more length for the foundation CH
  • Keep a loose tension and consider going up a stitch to prevent work from curling/shrinking
