This stitch is similar to the fishbone stitch, with a requirement to divide the pattern into two. The difference is that the stitches in the centre of the pattern does not fall on the stitch line, but on its either sides. This helps to make the stitches far spaced to create the open fishbone effect.
It is good to know the fishbone stitch to understand this stitch. I will work on a leaf shaped pattern. I have marked the centre with a stitch line. The lines are named X, Y and Z for the ease of the lesson.
