Stitch 32 is called Buttonholed Herringbone. I decided it was time for some fun, and this stitch is certainly that, as well as being surprisingly useful. Stitch 32 makes a border that is highly textured like a braid. It is literally a herringbone stitch that has been buttonholed, so check out the tutorial for Buttonholed Herringbone and have some fun with it. If you work two rows facing each other, you have a line of circles and if you work two rows back to back they become diamonds.
