Palestrina stitch

The TAST stitch for week 26 is Palestrina stitch. I’ve added 2 rows to the Aida sampler I started last week. The top row is done in perle 8. I made the Palestrina stitch the same way as the crossed buttonholestitch. The bottom row is done in perle 5.
On this linen sampler I added 2 Palestrina stitch swirls. Caron Watercolors on the left and DMC cotton a broder on the right.
