Today's #smallspacesunday combines of a wide variety of cashmere stitches...horizontal, vertical, and diagonal. It's quite interesting but you have to pay attention as the alternating directions are not the same pattern. One includes a full cashmere and the other is a diagonal cashmere..
The stitched sample uses four plies of DMC Floss on 18 mesh for a roof on a Melissa Shirley Halloween building. It would work really well as a floor, greenery, grass, or tabletop. Consider stitching one of the Cashmere columns in a second contrasting thread, whether that is color or finish. If I had to do this roof over again, I would add a complementary metallic thread.
