Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 235: Barred Herringbone Stitch

For fans of the Herringbone Stitch, here is a version for you. Personally, I like its hidden Ms and Ws!

I found the stitch at Arts & Design where there is a simple and clear stitch graph. 

Or have a look at my photo instruction:

First, make a row of Herringbone Stitch.

Now use Straight Stitch to make vertical stitches. 

I have used a contrasting colour for clarity.

You can also keep using the same thread, and 

colour, of course.


Add here.


  1. It would be a good stitch in an embroidery quiz. When it's worked in a single colour, it looks nothing like herringbone stitch.

  2. This looks very cute!

  3. I have done the herringbone stitch but never seen this variation. Love it!

  4. Ooh, the single colour one even conceals the structure, doesn't it!
