TAST 2007 - basque stitch

What a nice stitch this is!

Sometimes it's nice to just sit quietly and do some 'traditional' stitching. And that is how this stitch made me feel, although I can see possibilities for using it more creatively. The stitch was new to me, so I started with a simple line to get the feel of it, then I couldn't resist adding a small straight stitch in each loop. That set me off investigating filling in gaps and lacing rows of the stitch together. This is worked in crochet cotton on coarse aida.
