TAST 2010 - Lock Stitch

Bit more catching up - lock stitch. You can change the look of this stitch by varying the length of the satin stitches, and by changing which stitches you "pinch" together with the lacing.

Lock stitch worked in a block; short satin stitches and alternate pairs of satin stitches "pinched" together by the lacing.

Longer satin stitches in a lighter weight of thread. Pairs of stitches "pinched" at both bottom and top.

I haven't tried it in wool yet. And I also think it would look good worked over a block of solid satin stitch.
