Dear KnittingAngel, you truly are an ANGEL for sharing this! I find it very useful and will make my sister happy as she was working on a pattern whose name was something like "Lilly of the valley" stitch. Neither of us knew what stitch was used in detail and now I have seen that it's the very technique you just show here. THANKS so so much!
