Woven herringbone

I was so stressed this week. I was also trying to transpose the daisy stitch to the loom but couldn't for the life of me figure it out. So I tried something easier and ta dah! I just transposed the stitch from the Knitting on the Net stitch database

Woven Herringbone: Multiple of 4 + 2
Row 1: k2, *sl2 wyif; rep from *
Row 2: k1, *sl2 wyif, k2; rep from *, end k1
Row 3: sl2 wyif, *k2, sl2 wyif; rep from *
Row 4: k3, *sl2 wyif, k2; rep from *, end last rep k1 instead of k2
Rows 5-12: Rep row 1-4 twice
Row 13: Rep row 3
Rep 14: Rep row 2
Row 15: Rep row 1
Row 16: Rep row 4
Rows 17-24: Reps row 13-16 twice

NOTE:  To do sl wyif, slip stitch with yarn in front, lift the peg in which you are supposed to be slipping your stitch, and bring the working yarn behind the peg, and then put your stitch back on the peg.

It's a pretty dense pattern, and if anyone needs help, I'll post pics in 2 weeks.


  1. Thank you so much for this stitch! I was looking to convert it so hard and couldn't!
    How about the regular herinbone one is it possible to do it on the loom since it is calling to knit from the back of the loop?!

  2. I tried to draw a picture and upload it, but my drawing skills for showing the regular herringbone stitch were too confusing! Yes it is possible, although it requires more work than the woven stitch. It's actually quite easy once you get going but you have to recognize each loop when you knit over your k2tog....I shall explain soon

    1. Thank you! I cant wait to see how! I have try and frog and try and cry lol several time for over a week now it is so frustrated loll! I get real tired of the knit and purl loll i need a new chalenge!
