Oriental Stitch Instructions & Diagram

You can see the diagram of this stitch below. 
  • Start making a tent stitch
  • Parallel to the previous stitch, make a diagonal stitch that skips two canvas intersections, then one that skips three, and finally one that skips four
  • Continue making the triangles on that diagonal line until the row is completed
  • Then, make the same triangles in the opposite direction, the guide to make them will be that the longest stitches (skip four canvas intersections) should be next to each other
  • The remaining spaces between the triangles will be filled with three stitches that skip two canvas intersections each
