Couched Herringbone Stitch
Here is a quick tutorial for Couched Herringbone Stitch. First you work a row of Herringbone stitches as shown in the last post, then using a contrasting thread (I used one with a bit of sparkle) working from right to left, bring your needle up at 1 and down at 2 to form a small stitch on the first top crossed end. Next bring your needle up at 3 and then down at 4 to form a small stitch on the second bottom crossed end. To start the next stitch bring your needle up at 5 and repeat all along your row of Herringbone stitches.
