Here I made a border with a herringbone corner with perle 5. The brown triangle is a closed herringbone with perle 8. If you click the photo you can see how I changed the size of the stitches.
I think this row is my favourite. First I stitched the big herringbones with yellow perle 5. Then I made the brown rows with DMC broder special to tie the big herringbones.
This is a great filling or border pattern. I stitched it with 2 threads of stranded floss.
On this sampler I only wanted to use herringbone stitches, because I'm going to attach it to the stitch file worksheet. Then it's easy to see how I made the stitches later. But it would be fun to add beads or other stitches in the open spaces.
