Since that very first day I picked up a crochet hook and decided to take it for a spin, I immediately fell in love with the variety of stitches at my fingertips, and how unique and interesting every single one was.

Most of you would have realised by now that my obsession with crochet stitches with a knit-like texture is nothing new. Recently I was drawn to the knitted Herringbone stitch, and the simple yet lovely slanted design it flaunted... Which led me on a fun journey to a crochet version!
