This month's first #smallspacesunday is a cousin of one of my go-to small stitches. It's the exact same concept, simply over five rows (instead of three) and on the horizontal (instead of vertical).
There's nothing overly complicated about this stitch. I recommend adding the aqua lines first, followed by the gray lines. The beauty of this stitch, whether it is on the horizontal or vertical axis, is it works well on any narrow space. It would make a fantastic door or panel in wallpaper. It would also make a great ground cover, especially with contrasting colors or finishes.
The stitched sample on Instagram is from my stitch guide for Emma Williams' Rooftops. It uses DMC Floss and Neon Rays on 13-mesh.
