Also known as : Twisted daisy border stitch
This stitch originated from the Basque provinces of northern Spain. Basque stitch has been found in old embroideries from these areas of Spain, southern France and Portugal as well. This stitch was used along with Basque knot (of the Palestrina family of stitches). Traditionally, Basque stitch was done with red thread over green fabric or white thread on blue-green background.
For this lesson, I have used a curved stitch line from where the stitch will originate. I have also drawn a parallel line below it, to keep each basque stitch in equal length with each other. This stitch follows easy curves and gives a complicated look.
