This charming little stitch is from June McKnight’s Colorful Backgrounds book. It has very short rows of Diagonal Mosaic that alternate direction, creating a zig-zag. It is an easy but densely textured stitch. It’s name is Zig-zag Diagonal Mosaic. The diagram is below. A single zig-zag row is on the left; two full rows with a partial row are on the right.
Done over a large area such as this it looks like stripes. If you had a zig-zag area on a canvas, try this stitch — it would be a knock-out!
You could also vary it by making each row longer for wider stripes.
Vineyard Silk was used for this stripe.
Come back tomorrow for a new stitch!
