Crochet Wide Herringbone Stitch

This week on Ask Me Monday I show how to crochet the Wide Herringbone Stitch, as used by designer Natalie Thomas in her Arrows Scarf design for YarnYAY! This stitch has a cool, lacy woven look that looks great in any weight of yarn. Watch the episode, then work a practice swatch using the instructions below. Have fun!

    I have been struggling with this stitch. Sometimes it help me to look at a chart. Is there one for this?
