Take a Stitch Tuesday - #4 Cretan Stitch

This is my first attempt at this stitch.  I tried it first with the yellow cotton floss and I think I spaced them too far apart.  I did another on top with the cream color thread. It looks too much like a feather stitch.  I need to practice this one – maybe on an evenweave fabric.

Great results, Pamela, Cretan stitch is one of my fav.s. and can be used in combination with other stitches for really
unique results.
