Plaited Stitch

Oh well. I've done more research and am now thoroughly confused. Essentially I think this is a version of a herringbone stitch done vertically instead of horizontally. Interesting trying to chase this down.

Anyway. I managed to finish this stitch last night. I've got some couching with herringbone to do today. And some backstitching. And then the piece will be finished. I like it more and more the closer I get to the end of Arabella.

I've wondered myself if the difference isn't the order in which the stitches are laid or perhaps the starting compensation stitch. A lot of stitches are very much like others when you get right down to it.
