The Herringbone Half Double Crochet Stitch (HBHDC) is a beautiful crochet stitch characterized by its slanting stitches resembling a fishbone. The pattern from the stitch creates an overall angled appearance and produces a jagged edge.
Luckily, there are solutions to make the edges appear neater!
Tidy up the edges by blocking the fabric.
Blocking helps the crochet stitches in your projects stand out, appear neater and retain its correct size and shape.
ALTER A STITCH
Proceed with the same pattern for the HBHDC Stitch, upon reaching the last stitch in the row, substitute the HBHDC stitch with a Half Double Crochet Stitch. A barely visible switch that makes the edges appear neater.
Neaten up the edges of your crochet project using borders/edgings. Use basic crochet stitches or decorative ones to create a neater edge for your project!
