If it is herringbone, how do you make that stitch?

If I remember it correctly, the Herringbone st is made like this:
K2 tog through the back loop, drop 1st st off left needle and repeat, knitting 1 at the end (it was the 2nd st of the last k2tog). On the purl row, p2tog, drop 1st st from left needle, repeat, knit the last st. It makes a VERY dense fabric, so try it out with large needles at first.
