17.these rows were worked too closely to take pictures of individual rows. The details-
First row, this stitch is worked with herringbone stitch.
The second row, a variation of Cretan stitch and up and down buttonhole stitch are worked together.
In the third row, bugle beads are added and in the fourth row, pearl beads are added to a row of this stitch.

I enjoyed working these variations, though while detailing, the name of the stitch was too long for me use it repeatedly!
