Today's stitch is a whole lot easier than last week's...and much more pink. Somehow pink makes so many things better.
The stitch is a very straightforward Parisian Variation. Instead of the traditional over-4 and over-2 rows, I added height to it by changing the over-4 to over-6.
The stitched sample uses Rainbow Gallery Cashmere and Silk Lame.
This stitch would be great for any number of areas that you want to add a little something-something to, yet don't want to go nuts. The over-6 stitch adds height to this stitch, making it great for walls, tree trunks, pants, chimneys...all kinds of essential needlepoint-y things.
Don't overlook flipping it 90 degrees and stitching it on the horizontal axis. That would work really well for wide fields, sand, or distant mountains.
