Herringbone Texture Knitting Stitch

learn how to knit the herringbone texture stitch

Only knit and purl stitches are used to make up this herringbone texture pattern. A beginner could complete this pattern however, it can be tricky to keep track of all the stitches. I would suggest you only tackle this pattern if you feel confident with recognizing the visual difference between a knit and purl stitch.
