The laced herringbone stitch variation of the standard herringbone stitch is laced with a second color or weight of yarn, and is worked in two passes.This stitch is pretty worked in bands and rows, and when stitched on a larger scale using thick threads it looks awesome on towels.
To work this variation, stitch a line of standard herringbone stitch as the first pass, spacing the stitches evenly apart.
For the second pass, weave a second color or weight of thread around the herringbone stitches, lacing the thread under and over each intersection.
