While I was working in Ndebele herringbone stitch, I came across a new stitch. This new stitch is like Nedebele herringbone stitch, but not symmetrical (see the right photo).
It has several variations: flat, circular, tubular, and developed versions of them.
I named it Herringbone à la SweetPeas after my website. The article of this stitch (straight edges and zigzag edges) and a bracelet made by it appears in Bead & Button magazine (April 2002, issue #48).
It was called "Plaited herringbone stitch" in these articles. Therefore, I have been using this name ever since.
