Double Herringbone version 1 is also known as Indian herringbone stitch.
Work by first laying a foundation row of herringbone stitch.
Work another row of herringbone. On every second stitch, slide the needle under the cross bar created by the first row of stitches. This means that the second row of herringbone is woven or interlaced through the first row as illustrated.
This variety looks very effective when worked in two colours but is also the foundation of many versions of woven herringbone, Twisted lattice band being one of them.
