The Herringbone Double Crochet Stitch is one of my favorite stitches. It is fun to work up, provides a good coverage, and makes an awesome looking project!
I use this stitch often in many of my patterns, including some of my garments and even in a blanket!

More About the Stitch
Since it provides good coverage, and the stitches are pretty tightly woven together, so it’s great for garments!
When worked in rows, it gives the fabric a true herringbone look.
It is worked similar to a regular double crochet, but with one added step.
The abbreviation for this stitch is herr-dc.
herr-dc: yarn over, insert hook into st, draw up a loop and pull through 1 loop on hook, yarn over, pull through 1 loop (2 loops on hook at this point), yarn over, pull through both loops.
