Laced Herringbone Stitch

This is a really easy way to add further decoration to plain herringbone stitches. First work a row of herringbone stitches and then working from left to right and using contrasting thread, bring your needle up at 1, thread the needle around the first diagonal as shown in the picture and down under the second diagonal forming a loop around the crossed ends, without piercing the fabric with your needle. Continue along your row threading up and down over the crossed ends.
