This is a very nice stitch to work. I used Perle 8 yellow and stitched into the same holes for most of the pattern. If you imagine a Fly stitch between A, B and C then make the knot, I then make an upside down Fly stitch coming up at C, down at D and up at B, finishing with another knot.
I did a few versions of this method in Blue and dark green wool, both doubled and single. In the bottom right sample I moved the ‘C’ stitch to come up directly below ‘A’.
A few more samples . I liked the little flower. That figure 2 developed without any plan. grin….. I began, by thinking of a waterlily. There are knots along the sloped section but are covered by the slanting threads.
I hope to try the stitch with some darker threads and gold metallics to see how it would look as a Renaissance border
