This stripe uses Byzantine Stitch, below. All the stitches go over three threads and there are five stitches in each step. This makes a bolder pattern than many other versions of this stitch.
The Needlepoint Book calls this Byzantine #3.
It is stitched using Gumnuts Poppies. This thread is hand-dyed (notice the slight color variation. It is a silk/wool blend similar to Impressions.
Come back Friday for the next stitch!
