What Is the Herringbone Half Double Crochet?

The herringbone half double crochet is a one row repeat and is much like the half double crochet, but with one very small difference. It’s slightly taller than the standard half double crochet. This stitch is pretty easy once you get the hang of it and can be used for lots of projects

The herringbone half double crochet creates a semi dense fabric and creates an interesting herringbone effect when done in multiple rows.
