This pattern consists of one row of overcasting stitches and one of cross-stitch running diagonally across the stuff.
Besides the cottons already mentioned, washing gold thread (Or fin D.M.C pour la broderie), may be used for the overcasting.
Dead gold introduced into simple needlework of this kind enlivens it extremely.
