TAST 2010 - raised herringbone band

This week's stitch is Raised Herringbone Band, sometimes also known as Raised Lattice Band. I've tried out some different lacing variations on the herringbone stitch. I also laid down some horizontal foundation rows for the satin stitch to raise it a bit more.

I've separated the raised band rows with a double row of herringbone stitch.

The first two rows are the basic stitch. Row three and four are two rows of herringbone stitch in crewel wool laced with cotton perle. Row five is laced double herringbone stitch.
