Also known as: German Interlacing Stitch
This stitch requires a base of herringbone stitch, around which we weave using a contrasting colored thread. It is highly decorative and so makes a good stitch for borders.
You need to know how to do herringbone stitch before beginning this tutorial.
|Herringbone Stitch: Make a row of herringbone stitch for the base.|
|Fig 1: Begin from the left end of the herringbone stitch row. Bring out a contrasting colored thread from the center and take it up and down the ‘legs’ of the cross, as shown.||Fig 2: Go up and down the herringbone stitch and the working thread, like illustrated. We would be encircling each ‘crossing’ of the herringbone stitch.|
|Fig 3: After encircling the first ‘crossing’, we move to the next one.||Fig 4: Continue with the similar pattern of encircling before moving to the next ‘crossing’.|
|Fig 5: A portion of the finished laced herringbone stitch would look like this.|
