Fishbone Stitch

This is one of my favourites as it looks amazing once complete.

Stitch as follows…

Petal 5:


Start at the tip and work the top section first. Once you have your vertical straight stitch, each stitch after that is done alternately on each side from the outside in.

Take each stitch coming up on the outer edge and then back down on the centre line just below the last stitch and you work your way down from there.
