It is easy and attractive.
Updated: Mattia tells me the French name is: point de gerbe noué
(The instructions in A-Z is for four straight stitches, but as I am working on Aida, I chose an uneven number.)
So make three (or four, or any number!)
Insert the needle from the right underneath the straight stitches without biting the fabric.
Place the thread over the needle and pull through.
You now have a nice knot.
Anchor the thread in the centre hole.
Come out next to the last leg and repeat.
The workings is totally different from Cross and Twist Stitch and Moss Stitch, but the three do resemble each other, don't you think?
