This is a lovely stitch introduced by SharonB on this TAST 2014 challenge. I have started working on this sampler.

2.Small stitches are worked through the fabric in the first row. The stitches are worked closely in the second row, I like this. The loops are worked at right angles to the cretan stitches in the third row.
