This stitch is also referred as Indian herringbone stitch. The working of this stitch is on Pintangle. I use this stitch with a slight variation to work kutchwork. Though this is linear stitch I want try this stitch on filling some shapes on my sampler.
Starting with filling some diamond shapes. The basic herringbone is worked in dark blue polyester thread, and the stitch over it is worked with shaded pink polyester thread. The double herringbone on the curve is worked with blue thread with back stitch outline in pink.
