Draw a herringbone texture.

The herringbone texture is named after a fish, because the pattern of thin, parallel lines looks just like a herring’s spine. In fabric, herringbone is a texture in which the threads are woven together.

Drawing the herringbone texture is about knowing how to team up your lines and point them in opposite directions to form right-side-up and upside-down V’s (this alternating V shape is called chevron). Fabric with a herringbone pattern is often used to make pants and men’s sports jackets.

Draw a series of angled lines in a vertical row. Repeat in a chevron pattern, switching the direction of the angle with each vertical row.
