TAST - herringbone

I love red and especially dark red, so inspiration came very quickly!B is for Böske, Elisabeth nicname in Hungarian.


The seam is stitched with a double herringbone stitch; using Anchor 42 perlé and Oliver Twist (OT) 02. Colonial knots are in DMC 346 perlé.
First row left is also a double herringbone; using a OT ribbon and Thread and woven with DMC 346 perlé.
On the left a single row in DMC 346 perlé.
The letter B is all done with OT 02 perlé.

How original of you to use this stitch to make a large letter like this!

I love your double herringbone stitches plus colonial knots. The dark red colour is very nice on the fabric.
