A combo of herringbone stitch and buttonhole stitch in perle 8 and DMC broder special.
Another combo of herringbone and buttonhole stitch. Here I used the buttonhole stitch to tie the herringbones. The threads are perle 8 and Caron Wildflowers.
Three rows of herringbone stitches tied with a buttonhole stitch in the centre. I flipped the arms of the buttonhole like the Cretan stitch. The herringbone stitches are stitched with perle 5, the buttonhole stitches with Caron Watercolors for the first row and Caron Wildflowers for the other two.
Here I used fly stitches to tie the herringbone stitch. The threads are perle 5 and Caron Wildflowers.
A combo of herringbone, Cretan and buttonhole stitch. Stef Francis spun silk with flames for the herringbone, 2 threads of DMC satin for the Cretan and Caron Wildflowers for the buttonhole stitches.
A variation with 3 rows of herringbone stitches, a big one with perle 5 and 2 smaller woven herringbones with DMC broder special and Caron Wildflowers.
I stitched a square herringbone on a piece of black linen with white perle 12. It was not easy to take a photo of it, it looks better in reality.
This border is part of my PLOS border sampler. It’s a combo of herringbone and Cretan stitch.
I made this ATC in January 2008, when I started with the TAST 2007 stitches. It’s all stitched with 2 threads of stranded DMC.
There’s a bigger photo of these borders on my Flickr-page.
