Composite Stitches

TÍte de Boeuf Stitch

Two variations: the first (sometimes called Detached Wheatear Stitch) looks more like a bull's head and is worked with a loose horizontal stitch that is held down in the middle with a Detached Chain Stitch; the second consists of a Detached Chain Stitch and two angled Straight Stitches on either side.
