Today’s stitch is an illustration of how moving a stitch just one teeny tiny row changes everything!
The stitched sample is a shirt with Pepper Pot Silk and Silk Lame on 18-mesh. Technically, it is a small space stitch in a large space but I wanted the attention to go to the green coat stitch (which was unstitched at the time). The stitch is a close cousin to (what I call) the Diagonal T. As you can see, the second stitch doesn’t slide under the row above. It is one row over and it makes an intriguing difference.
Oh, the ideas! Rooftops with Tweedy, greenery with two shades of green Pepper Pot Silk, dirt path with overdyed ThreadWorx wool, floors with Silk Perle, windows with Petite Silk Lame or a lightweight Kreinik, shoes with a heavy Kreinik. I think you get the idea.

A Note about Diagrams
I use color in diagrams to make them as clear as possible. The primary function of different colored lines is to illustrate a stitch sequence. For example, layering of colors demonstrates you add them in that order. They can also provide ideas on how to integrate additional threads (one line for each color). Or, you can use the same thread for all color lines. That's where I encourage you to use your imagination for the space you are stitching!
