This season, I’ve gotten very excited about the Herringbone Stitch. There are so many different ways to change up the look of this stitch! Today, I’m introducing a set of patterns that utilize the Herringbone Double Crochet stitch (HbDC), worked in a continuous round.
If you’re a beginner who already has the most basic stitches under your belt, you’re going to love this scarf pattern! You’ll learn a new stitch and have plenty of practice with it as you go round and round the scarf.
And the great news is, there’s a matching slouch hat!

Yarn: About 360 yards of Vanna’s Choice by Lion Brand (that’s a little more than 2 skeins). Vanna’s Choice is a #4 aran yarn. The sample is shown in “Linen”.
Gauge: 5 rows of 6 HbDC = 2″ square
You’ll also need: Yarn needle and stitch marker
SL ST (slip stitch)
FSC (foundation single crochet; see tutorial here)
SC (single crochet)
HDC (half double crochet)
HbDC (herringbone double crochet; see “special stitch” below)
HbDC – Herringbone Double Crochet. When worked in the round without turning, this stitch creates two beautiful and very different textures on either side of the piece. Here’s how you do it:
HbDC: Yarn over, insert hook into stitch. Yarn over, pull loop through stitch AND through first loop on hook (this is similar to a slip stitch motion). Two loops remain on hook. Yarn over and pull through first loop on hook. Two loops remain on hook. Yarn over again and pull the loop through both loops on the hook.
(If you need additional help, Moogly has an excellent video tutorial here.)
(1) This pattern is written in American Standard Terms.
(2) After joining Round 1, the pattern will be worked in a continuous, seamless round (no more joining). If you need to, you may use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of rounds.

Round 1: FSC 175. Join with a SL ST to the top of the first FSC, being careful not to twist the foundation round. (175)
Round 2: CH1. SC in same ST and in each of the next 2 STS. HDC in each of the next 3 STS. HbDC in each remaining ST. Do not join. (175)
Rounds 3-17: HbDC in each ST around. (175)
Round 18: HbDC in each of the first 166 STS; 9 STS remain unworked. HDC in each of the next 3 STS. SC in each of the next 3 STS. SL ST in each of the remaining 3 STS. This will smooth down your round so that we don’t end with a jagged edge. (175)
Fasten off and weave in all ends.
