 Raised Herringbone Band is Stitch 75  in the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge. (TAST) Raised Herringbone band is one of those interesting stitches that are easily forgotten but prove to be remarkably handy once you learn it. This stitch makes a decorative filler if you work it in a block row upon row. Or if you work just one line of it  you create a solid border ideal to frame a motif or use it along the edge of something. You will find a tutorial for Raised Herringbone band in my stitch dictionary. If you need a refresher on how to work Herringbone stitch ( TAST stitch 5) there is a link to the Raised Herringbone band tutorial.
