This stitch is great looking….the palestrina stitch and your diagram of it is perfect for me….it reminds of the double hitch used in needle tatting…..(not that i do needle tatting). This is right up my alley being so dimensional . Thank you for having this series and thank you for your stitch illlustrations. Being left handed i often find that i have to closely scrutinize the actual workings of the stitch as i follow a diagram and hope that i can “translate the handedness” correctly. I trhink i am also left-brained………ggggggg, possibly as in “left-behind” as opposed to logical.
I am not able to follow along at any where near the pace everyone seems to be going…but one of these days i will start the series.quite possibly with this stitch, which i think is going to be great substitute for a buttonhole stitch.
