Stitch 96 in the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge is Reversed Buttonhole Bar which creates a textured braid like line that can be used as a border or edging.
As Usual you can find a tutorial for Reversed Buttonhole Bar in my Stitch Dictionary. This tutorial indicates that you use one line of reverse buttonhole as all the written references to this stitch I have seen leave the stitch at that. However, you can increase the number of lines to produce and even more interesting stitch particularly if you use a thread that has a firm twist like cotton perle #5. I hope you enjoy experimenting with Reversed Buttonhole Bar stitch as once you get the rhythm of working you can be very creative with it.
