category: Limet-Filling pattern
stitches used: Rose stitches and 7 stitches of the simple square eyelet
diagonal striped pattern
First, in the established Limet grid, one row of Rose stitches is worked along the diagonal axis using Coton à broder No. 25.
Then, using Coton à broder No. 30 and always starting at the meeting points of two Rose stitches, 7 stitches of a simple square eyelet are worked counterclockwise. For more detailed description please refer to my book “Limetrosen I”.
On the return pass, one more row of 7 stitches of the simple square eyelet is worked – each step is worked mirrored and staggered so that the stitched sections interlock.
And then another Rose stitch row is worked.
One Rose stitch row and two rows of interlocking square eyelet sections always alternate.
