Back Stitch Trellis
Used in Jacobean embroidery, a combination of Back Stitch and French Knots. Stitch all lines going in one direction, working back and forth from the end line to the beginning of the next. The lines going in the other direction will be stitched by the same method. May be worked diagonally to create diamonds, or horizontally to create squares. Small Cross Stitches may be used in place of the French Knots.
