This band of stitching is created by a line of herringbone stitch which is then tied with what I call a loop stitch. I made it up but I am sure someone else before me has done the same thing and it is documented.
Perle thread #5
This section of my sampler is worked on cream dress linen whichis an uneven weave
All samples are 15 cm (6 inches) wide and stitched together in one long band sampler.
The sampler is currently 44 ft 5 inches or 533 inches (1353.83 centimetres) or 14.8 yards (13.53 metres) long and still being added to.
I started this section of the sampler in 2004 and completed it early 2005.
