TAST stitch 70 is fancy herringbone stitch. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.
I stitched a wide version on Aida. The threads are perle 12 for the herringbone, cotton a broder for the upright cross stitch and perle 5 for the lacing.
Some time ago Sharon shared a tutorial for the raised Cretan stitch. This stitch was new to me, so I just had to give it a try. I used perle 12 for the backstitches and Caron Wildflower for the raised Cretan.
