Raised fishbone stitch makes a wonderful over lapping, braided texture. The added bonus of this stitch is that it also stitches over itself, making it be raised over the stitches around it. This post will show step by step how to make raised fishbone with two video tutorials.
In the Nativity pattern, raised fishbone is worked side to side. It makes the headband on the shepherd look braided, or like woven leather.
This second example of raised fishbone is the perfect way to show how the shape and orientation of the stitch determine what the end result will be. This time the stitch makes a simple, beautiful flower.
