The second log in the major color uses a nice variation of Diagonal Mosaic that is an easy stitch for anyone to learn.
Diagonal Mosaic is often one of the first textured stitches new needlepointers learn. That’s because it is stitched in diagonal rows alternating the Tent Stitch you learned with an extended Tent Stitch that covers two intersections instead of three.
In this variation Montmartre Stitch, below, the stitches are made over two and three intersections. The long stitches meet. The holes are filled with Tent Stitches.
Stitch this log using the second-lightest of your major color.
